AFR Statement on CFPB Director Nomination

“The CFPB needs a director with a strong consumer financial protection record in order to fulfill its mission,” said Lisa Donner, executive director, Americans for Financial Reform. “ The President should have nominated someone with a commitment to that mission months ago, not waited until the last minute to reveal a nomination designed to keep Mick Mulvaney in charge. This nomination is a move to keep the CFPB hobbled and under the thumb of the payday lenders and Wall Street law breakers.”
