A couple of weeks ago the hardworking staff was first in Boston to note that Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley was on the short list to become director of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Turns out that was the long short list.
The short short list, according to the New York Times:
The other candidates are Michael S. Barr, an assistant Treasury secretary who helped shepherd the legislation through Congress, and Eugene I. Kimmelman, a former consumer advocate who is deputy assistant attorney general in the antitrust division of the Justice Department.
This time, the smartworking staff won’t even bother checking Coakley’s Twitter and Facebook pages for an update on Martha’s list-less condition.
