It turns our even top level regulators have to go through the mundane chore of filling out job applications.
That's according to a New York Times
Dealbook article detailing the steps Mary Jo White
is taking to secure her confirmation as the new SEC chairwoman. This includes meeting with members of the Senate banking committee and filling out a 20-page questionnaire.
“As a government official, I believe I have an established track record and the reputation of being tough, but fair,” was one of her answers, according to reporter Ben Protess.
Protess also reported that White said she did not plan to ever return to work for her former firm Debevoise & Plimpton, and to recuse herself from matters involving the firm for a year.
Her husband's job representing SEC-regulated companies is also a cause for concern among many, especially Democrats.
