President Obama on Monday nominated civil rights attorney Thomas E. Perez to be the next labor secretary, immediately drawing Republican opposition and another contentious confirmation fight on Capitol Hill.
President Obama is expected this week to pick former Maryland Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez as his new Labor Department head, but it's unclear, after Sen.

But months after Congress approved the nearly $800 billion package, the Wisconsin lawmaker was trying to steer money under the program to companies in his home state.
We've had some unusual Cabinet secretaries in past administrations - Earl Butz, John Mitchell and James G. Watt come to mind - but never anything quite like the present bunch.
