Obama Bypasses Congress and Appoints Cordray

White House: Recess appointment based on legal opinion that Congress is in recess - The Hill's Floor Action: "The Obama administration on Wednesday officially recess-appointed Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) based on a legal opinion from White House counsel that Congress — despite contrary arguments from Republicans — is in recess.

House and Senate Republicans quickly criticized the recess appointment by saying both chambers have been meeting in brief pro forma sessions every three days, a move that has kept Congress out of recess and should have prevented a recess appointment."
