  1. RE: TPMDC item. The Census Bureau will “work closely with” the White House, specifically Rahm Emanuel. Originally, the WH said the director would “report directly to” the WH after black and Hispanic leaders raised concerns about Gregg’s commitment to the Census Bureau. That, in turn, raised alarms among R’s who complained the WH was trying to “circumvent the census process for their political benefit.” The outrage is pretty ironic given that for years the R’s used the census data to gerrymander districts for their own political benefit.

    As a social scientist, that doesn’t make me feel a whole lot better but it’s better than leaving Census alone under Gregg.
