Dawn Johnson Withdraws Nomination for Office of Legal Counsel
Dawn Johnson has withrawn her nomination for Office of Legal Counsel. She cites the delays in confirming her nomination.
Unfortunately, my nomination has met with lengthy delays and political opposition that threaten that objective and prevent OLC from functioning at full strength. I hope that the withdrawal of my nomination will allow this important office to be filled promptly."
Senators say the votes weren't there. Ben Nelson, a Dem, opposed her, and even though Richard Lugar, a Republican, supported her, there was concern about a filibuster.
Seems to me like Obama could have pushed harder for her. She should have been confirmed.
