Dubai Port Exec Pulls His Nomination

The fallout from the Dubai ports deal continues.

The senior exec for DP World, the company at the center of the brouhaha, has asked to withdraw his nomination to head the U.S. agency which overseas ports.

If you recall, critics used President Bush’s pick of David Sanborn, director of operations for DP World in Europe and Latin America, to criticize the White House’s closeness to the company. Well, you won’t have David Sanborn to kick around anymore.
