Nomination Delayed

WASHINGTON () -- Former Kansas congressman Dan Glickman's nomination as President Bill Clinton's choice for agriculture secretary has been delayed while the FBI tries to resolve whether Glickman adequately reimbursed the House of Representatives and his campaign for personal expenses charged on credit cards, according to law enforcement and administration sources.


Clinton announced two months ago that he intended to nominate Glickman. But in the course of a routine background check it was discovered that Glickman's daughter had used her father's credit cards routinely dating back to the late 1980s, according to sources familiar with the case. Glickman has said he fully reimbursed both the House and his campaign.
