Schumer: Barofsky Hold Removed

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Politico reports:

The anonymous hold on Neil Barofsky, the Bush administration’s TARP special IG, was lifted late Wednesday, according to Chuck Schumer. That clears the way for (sic) quick voice vote on his nomination.

The government watchdog group POGO had also written on their website this morning that the hold had been lifted.

Still no confirmation on whether Kentucky GOPer Jim Bunning was behind it. But we’ve posted his photograph anyway.
