Tell Your Senators: Confirm Richard Cordray to Lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

President Obama’s recess appointment of Richard Cordray to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is expiring. Cordray has been re-nominated and is going through the confirmation process once again.

A former Ohio State Attorney General, Cordray’s history of standing up for consumers and winning against Wall Street and big banks when they try to rip off their customers makes him an excellent nominee.

But 43 Senate Republicans have threatened to filibuster Cordray’s nomination unless the consumer protection agency he heads is fundamentally weakened.

Don’t let opponents of consumer protection hold Cordray’s nomination hostage.

Tell your senators: Confirm Richard Cordray.
