In this Jan. 4, 2012 photo, former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray is photographed by the media in Cleveland. Cordray is the first director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Cordray’s combative tumble onto the national stage as President Barack Obama’s new consumer watchdog has been anything but typical for the studious, mild-mannered public servant who has occasionally been spotted padding around his office in sock feet.
