A campaign to stop Michael Baroody from getting nominated as head of the Consumer Product Safety Commission sprung up at StopBaroody.com. While Baroody was Executive Vice President of NAM, the manufacturer’s lobby:
• Fought to allow a higher level of arsenic in drinking water
• Opposed attempts to ban tobacco billboards near schools
• Lobbied to keep manufacturers from having to publicly disclose how much lead they were producing.
And this is the guy who is supposed to head the commission on consumer product safety?
