Guam - Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo's office will not comment on whether the delegate has submitted a nomination to President Barack Obama for the U.S. Attorney position for Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. U.S. Attorney Lenny Rapadas has been filling the position but his four-year term has already expired.
Bordallo's staff will not confirm whether or not the congresswoman submitted Attorney General Alicia Limtiaco's name for the position. Staffers only said the office does not have any comment on the matter at this time.
AG's Office Spokesperson Eric Palacios confirms with KUAM News that Limtiaco has not been nominated by the president for the position, but he does confirm that she has been asked if she would be interested in the federal post. He could not say whether or not Limtiaco had been asked by the congresswoman to take up that position that requires Senate confirmation.
