Obama nominates Perez as labor secretary

President Barack Obama on Monday nominated Thomas Perez, the assistant attorney general heading the Justice Department's civil rights division, as labor secretary.

A former federal prosecutor and an official in his home state of Maryland, Perez was sworn in to his current post in October 2009.

CNN's Jessica Yellin reported earlier this month that Obama would name Perez to the Cabinet position.

    Why is CNN against voter ID laws? And people who speak English as a first language? And anyone not willing to bow to the emporer? And anyone who knows how to use adverbs? ETC>

    The bright red sun is a sight to see.
    Bright is the adjective.
