Consumer Groups Oppose Gitenstein
Here's a link to the letter from Public Citizen and other consumer advocacy goups, to Senators Leahy and Specter, the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the Obama Administration, raising concerns about the appointment of Mark Gitenstein as the OLP chief. (We blogged about this before here.)
The line from the letter that, to me, best sums up the chief concern with Gitenstein is below:
With the economy reeling from corporate misconduct and a lack of government oversight, the American people deserve a proven champion of their interests at the head of OLP, not someone who has lobbied extensively against their interests.
Isn't there someone out there who's good for the job and doesn't have such tight ties to corporate America? St. Anthony!
