Senate Republicans tell White House to withdraw Puzder nomination - POLITICO

But Puzder is different. Ad the number of issues plaguing Puzder could fill an opposition research book: His ex-wife accused him of abuse on Oprah in 1990, he was tutored by a mob lawyer and recently admitted to failing to pay taxes on an undocumented immigrant. This week Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee members began viewing the Oprah tape, with top Democrat Patty Murray of Washington state saying that she was left "deeply troubled" by the video. A copy of the video was obtained by POLITICO and published late Tuesday night.

"He's done," said a person close to Puzder.


Ah darn. When the debate becomes, did he beat his wife, I guess it's over.
