24-Hour Dorman: Nominees kneecapped

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

They're piling up Gov. Chet Culver's failed nominees like chord wood
at the Statehouse today. Before I even had my lunch, DHS director
nominee Eugene Gessow and Iowa Power Fund board nominee Carrie La Seur
of Mount Vernon had been shot down by Republicans who denied them
needed votes. Yesterday, Environmental Protection Commission nominee
Shearon Elderkin of Cedar Rapids failed to get the 34 Senate votes
needed for confirmation. Democrats control the chamber 32-18, so you
need a couple of Republican votes to make it. But La Seur also got a
pair of no votes from Democrats.
