Neil Barofsky, SIGTARP

TITLE: Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program
Neil built the Office of the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Protection Program from two people to 100 people in one year. It would be easy to say that his staff did this, but in the beginning, he had no staff except himself and his Deputy. It's similar to going from zero to sixty under four seconds -- your head snaps back and the acceleration pushes your body into the seat. Imagine doubling your staff every two months and still getting out a quarterly report to Congress on a regular basis. Providing oversight for the TARP is a big job -- $700 billion big! To accomplish this task in a city of politics and patronage is no small task. This is Neil's strength. He really is looking out for the American taxpayer and not the politicians or the banks. (Read the full nomination.)
