Grassley Threatens Holds on Justice Nominees

It is actually more than a threat.  One nominee who had a confirmation hearing on March 30th, but has not had a committee vote, Denise O'Donnell, is waiting to take over the Bureau of Justice Assistance.  She is said to be one of several Justice nominees on hold by Senator Grassley.

We will see how long the administration wants to keep career bureaucrats in acting positions or come off the information Grassley has requested. But given some of the people in acting positions have been in those jobs for over half of Obama's first term, one has to wonder if another year will make a difference to the administration.
