Richard Cordray, who rarely acknowledged criticism of his leadership skills when he was Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), launched into an epic Twitter rant

Richard Cordray will have a new trophy to display on his mantle: The National Consumers League (NCL) is presenting him with its Trumpeter Award for his work as Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Cordray will receive the award at a ceremony tomorrow in Washington, D.C.
 
“CFPB Director Cordray’s commitment to regulating industry practices that prey on the most vulnerable consumers have earned him universal respect. As first director of the CFPB, he has set an inspirational trail for others to follow,” said NCL Executive Director Sally Greenberg.
 
The NCL is also presenting the Trumpeter Award to Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), citing his work in the civil rights movement and on Capitol Hill.
 
Also being honored is Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of the Center for Research and Drug Evaluation at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, who will receive the NCL’s Florence Kelley Consumer Leadership Award.
