JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

A staffer for the Georgia senator says unequivocally that Isakson isn’t blocking a vote on the nomination of Neil Barofsky to be bailout IG.

As for Voinovich of Ohio, a reader reports that a staffer in his office “said that he has not done it as far as they are aware and feel that if he had done it he would have announced that he did it. They said he is pro-oversight and just sent a letter to Pelosi and Reid requesting that a bailout overseer be assigned for the auto industry package.”

That’s 13 out of 49 largely ruled out. Keep making those calls!
