Polyglot for Wage and Hour Administrator

Almost two years into his term, President Obama is making a 2nd try at an Administrator for the Wage and Hour division of the Department of Labor, with his nomination of Leon Rodriguez, currently a DOJ lawyer and formerly County Attorney for Montgomery County, Maryland. See, President Obama Announces More Key Administration Posts.

The White House did not use the polyglot label, but when he was announced as County Attorney in April 2007, it was noted he spoke, “English, French, Spanish, Hebrew and Italian”.

President Obama’s earlier nominee, Lorelei Boylan from New York had asked that her name be withdrawn more than a year ago. See, Wage & Hour: Not Just Collective Actions Anymore.
