Former Orange County Supervisor Gaddi Vasquez has been targeted by former Peace Corps volunteers - and a Boston Globe editorial - saying that President George W. Bush should reconsider his choice to head the corps.
Critics complain that Vasquez, who was a supervisor when Orange County declared bankruptcy, has not served in the corps, has not been a CEO, and has no international experience.
Similar complaints have arisen with previous nominees for the post, all of whom have received Senate confirmation. But confirmation has become a more dicey proposition recently. Bush's nominee to head up the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Mary Sheila Gall, was rejected by Senate Democrats earlier this month in a committee vote along party lines.
