Corzine falters on Medicaid I.G. nominee

Another failure for Governor Jon Corzine’s embattled appointments office: the Senate Judiciary Committee has postponed consideration of Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Anderson’s nomination as Medicaid Inspector General. Corzine didn’t have the votes to get Anderson through the Democratic-controlled committee amidst residency issues (Anderson lives in Pennsylvania) and questions about his qualifications.

Anderson’s nomination was scheduled for a vote by the Judiciary Committee today. Another Corzine nomination on the agenda, Thomas Dowd as the Atlantic County Executive Superintendent of Schools, was also pulled for lack of support.
