As Christine wrote, Andrew Puzder is expected to withdraw his nomination due to lack of GOP support stemming from allegations of spousal abuse, which his ex-wife said are false, and the revelation that he hired an illegal alien as a housekeeper 25 years ago.
As a result, several Senate Republicans were on the fence about his nomination, voicing their hesitation to confirm Puzder. They wanted to see how he would fare at the hearings. Puzder is the CEO of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. and Democrats were prepared to use the fast-food chain’s commercials, which are considered racy (it’s women in bikinis eating hamburgers) to attack him.
