The Hill reports that Hensarling has demanded an investigation into whether Cordray violated election law. This follows the Financial Services Committee (chaired by Hensarling) staff report saying the Committee should consider holding Cordray in contempt (a story on the CFPB reply is here). And if you listen to the Committee's hearings during which Cordray testifies, the meanness is inescapable. Not how government is supposed to work.
