Now Bloomberg says Kathy Kraninger is the leading choice to be the next CFPB director

Here.  Four anonymous sources say she is Trump's leading choice. Will we hear a different name tomorrow?  Excerpt:

Kraninger, an associate director at OMB, previously worked for the Department of Homeland Security and the Senate Appropriations Committee.

The potential selection of Kraninger, which could be announced next week, is likely to raise concerns among Democrats, especially because of the lack of financial policy expertise in her background.

 Kraninger is a 2007 graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, according to her LinkedIn profile. As part of her work at OMB, she has worked with Treasury Department Counselor Craig Phillips on Trump’s review of the U.S. Postal Service, the Washington Post reported last month.

I can't think of any other candidates whose names have surfaced who have no background in consumer financial issues.  Looks like either the various conflicting news reports are simply wrong (a.k.a. fake news) or the chaos in the Trump White House is extending to this choice.
