5 (not just 4) names to be Comptroller General
On Tuesday, Congressional Democrats sent President Obama a list of four candidates to nominated as the next Comptroller General. The four are Rep. Todd Platts, Linda Bilmes at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, Acting Comptroller General Gene Dodaro, and former Assistant Comptroller Ira Goldstein. Today Congressional Republicans sent their own letter to the President recommending Stuart Bowen, the special inspector general for Iraq reconstruction. The letter was signed by House Minority Leader John Boehner, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs ranking member Susan Collins and House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform ranking member Darrell Issa.
