Take a good look at the photo on the left. It’s Richard Cordray, the guy President Obama recess-appointed as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Republicans are outraged, and with good reason. That’s because as Ohio Attorney General, Cordray actually went after the con man known as “Bobby Thompson.”
Thompson, who remains in hiding to avoid felony charges brought by Cordray, is the founder of the phony U.S. Navy Veterans Association, which scammed $2 million from Virginians and about that much from Ohioans, too.
Cordray is the only attorney general in all of the United State to take on the U.S. Navy Veterans and Thompson, (who was the second-largest individual contributor to Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s 2009 campaign).
The Republicans say they’re outraged that the president appointed Cordray without the advice and consent of the Senate.
I think that’s phooey, of course. I think they’re outraged because Cordray went after their close pal and ripoff artist, Bobby Thompson. Read that link, and make sure you take a close look at the pictures, for more on that.
Cordray is the best possible choice for the CFPB.
Meanwhile, will somebody tell me when Cuccinelli will see to it that there are Virginia charges against Bobby Thompson?
