Tim Geithner is not having much luck finding a deputy.
According to ABC News, his third pick for deputy treasury secretary â€” H. Rodgin Cohen, a partner in a New York law firm â€” has withdrawn his name from consideration. No word on why, just that a “problem” came up late in the vetting process.
Geithner (who is arguably the most important Cabinet secretary right now) is supposed to have 17 confirmed deputies.
He currently has zero.
