Per the RGA:
As he tries to falsely portray himself in an effort to mislead Ohio voters, Washington D.C. Bureaucrat Richard Cordray is desperately trying to defend his record at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Yesterday, Cordray took to Twitter to complain about the firing of the CFPB’s “advisory board,” stating that its members gave “their perspectives on the struggles of American families.” But as he has done in the past, Cordray is distorting the facts about the agency he mismanaged for nearly five years.
In truth, Cordray’s CFPB was constantly criticized for turning away small businesses and refusing to include small business owners in its advisory boards. Investor’s Business Daily accused the CFPB and its advisory board under Cordray of making rules that harmed small businesses while refusing to consult with them. Cordray’s advisory board was also criticized for their alarming lack of transparency, holding “secret talks” that “covered issues ranging from new mortgage regulations to onerous new rules for auto lenders and payday lenders” while barring small business owners and members of the media from attending.
For months, Cordray has tried to build a phony image of competence to Ohio voters, but the reality is that he was nothing more than a power-hungry Washington D.C. bureaucrat who pursued anti-business policies while his mismanagement led to scandal after scandal for the agency that he was supposed to be running. Ohioans can’t trust him to lead.
