Andrew Puzder, Pres. Trump's nominee for Sec. of Labor, has withdrawn himself from consideration over claims of domestic abuse and hiring an illegal worker. A tape of his ex-wife speaking to Oprah about their marital issues was exposed. The ex has since come forth saying she mischaracterized him on the show and only wanted a free trip. He admitted to hiring an undocumented housekeeper. In addition to these scars on his integrity it was unlikely that he would be confired. Puzder also lacked bi-partisan support.
Puzder was the CEO of Hardees and Carl's Jr. burger chains. His failure to be confirmed is the second blow to the Trump administration in a week, as they try to recover from the resigatnion of National Security advisor, Micahel Flynn's resgination over sharing sensitive information with a Russian Ambassaor.
