More on Fox for Henhouse

Yesterday Public Citizen President Joan Claybrook announced our opposition to the nomination of Micheal Baroody as the head of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).  We also released a short summary of some of the reasons he's so wrong for the job.

Baroody’s nomination reflects an arrogant Administration attempt to further gut the CPSC by filling positions designed for public-minded honest brokers with the Administration’s corporate cronies. His nomination should be rejected by the Senate.

You might have read our first shot across the bow on this blog a few days ago . . . so stay tuned . . . and thanks for taking action.
