ATF's Anti-Gun SAC, Traver, Transfers to Denver

Andrew L. Traver, currently the SAC of the Chicago Field Division, will assume leadership of the Denver Field Division.  Mr. Traver has also served as ASAC of the New Orleans and San Francisco Field Divisions.  Mr. Traver remains President Obama’s nominee to be ATF’s Director

 Katie Pavlich over at Townhall.com explains:
President Obama's pick for ATF director, anti-gun Andrew Traver, has been transferred from his position as special agent in charge of the ATF Chicago Field Division, to head up the Denver division. According to sources, the move came after Traver felt frustrated his confirmation for ATF director had been stalled in the Senate for nearly a year. The estimated cost to transfer Traver is nearly a million taxpayer dollars, all because his feelings are hurt. Traver chose to specifically to work in Chicago, (where his buddies Obama and Rahm hang out) and instead of forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for his transfer, he should stay and finish the job.
No word on where current Denver SAC Marvin G. Richardson will go. We'll have to wait and see if Traver will try to Chicagoize Colorado or if he's just here to lay low and wait for his retirement. Doesn't look like he's going to get that ATF Director position anytime soon.
