    3 Dumbledore's Army: Bureaucrats Mistake CFPB for Hogwarts

    In Tuesday's vlog, iTod offers a quick breakdown of the ongoing shenanigans at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. 

    Many mid-level CFPB bureaucrats are furious a federal judge ruled that Mick Mulvaney is the Agency's Acting Director.  These employees have formed a resistance group dubbed "Dumbledore's Army."

    The group's name is, of course, an homage to the secret resistance force in the Harry Potter series. Listen to our 7-minute vlog to learn more about the latest political movement inspired by a children's story.
