White House Renominates a Nominee
By Al Kamen
There was some consternation earlier Tuesday afternoon when the White House put out this curious announcement: "WITHDRAWALS SENT TO THE SENATE: Harris D. Sherman, of California, to be Under Secretary of Agriculture for Natural Resources and Environment, vice Mark Edward Rey, resigned, which was sent to the Senate on September 10, 2009."
What could this be? Yet another vetting misstep? A tax problem? A nanny problem? Some health concern?
No, nothing like that. Seems the White House, in sending his nomination up to the Hill, mistakenly said Sherman was from California, instead of from Colorado. They don't use Wite-out at the White House, a source said, so this meant they had to withdraw the nomination and then send it up again.
At ease, everyone.
