Manny still in the mix

Miami Mayor Manny Diaz still appears to be in the running for heading up the federal housing agency, the Washington Post says today as it profiles potential candidates for Obama administration jobs.

The Post notes his appointment would give Obama a "prominent Latino in the Cabinet." But it also notes that Diaz's "housing director, whom he had long defended, was ejected from her job last year after the Miami Herald reported on cronyism and botched housing projects. Prosecutors also were investigating reports that she had steered work to employers of her son and ex-husband."
