Statement on Senator Dean Heller Voting for “Foreclosure King” Steven Mnuchin for Treasury Secretary

Las Vegas, NV – Today, Nevada State Democratic Party Roberta Lange released the following statement after Republican Senator Dean Heller voted for former OneWest Bank CEO Steven Mnuchin to be the next Secretary of the Treasury:

“Once again today, Senator Heller helped Donald Trump fill the swamp by rubber stamping a Wall Street insider to be the next Treasury Secretary. Nevada was the epicenter of the foreclosure crisis, and Steven Mnuchin’s OneWest Bank took advantage of the crash by using predatory practices to evict thousands of Nevada families from their homes. After pretending to ask tough questions a few weeks ago, Senator Heller sided with Trump and cast his vote for a foreclosure king who lined his own pockets at the expense of those struggling homeowners. While Mnuchin gets to work staffing the Treasury Department with his Wall Street buddies, Nevadans can blame Dean Heller for this latest addition to Trump’s rigged Cabinet.”
