CFPB's Richard Cordray to appear on Jeopardy ... again

New Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray discusses the top three priorities for his agency.

This final note today.

Did you know there's a salt shortage? The kind that goes on the road. The bad weather across the country has driven up demand for road salt so that cities are actually starting to run out. For example, Morton Salt told Cleveland that they're going to run 23,000 tons short.

Who knew that Morton makes both table salt and the kind we use on roads?

And then, this answer.

This current head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will appear once again on Jeopardy!, where he was a five-time undefeated champion in 1987.

Back then, he was a judicial clerk from Ohio.

The Question?

For $200, who is Richard Cordray, Alex?

Lizzie O'Leary, who once "totally choked" (her words, not ours) in Final Jeopardy, says good luck!
