COSTA RICA NEWS – The Washington Post says President Obama’s has appointed “yet another bundler” in the naming of  S. Fitzgerald Haney as the new U.S. Ambassador to Costa Rica.

us-embassy-sanjoseDescribing Costa Rica as a “land of wonderful beaches, volcanoes, tropical forests, zip-lining, exotic fauna and flora, lovely people and no army”, the Washington Post criticizes Obama’s choice and that we would be wrong to think that Haney is “just another fat cat who gave huge bucks to buy a nice embassy and probably doesn’t speak Spanish and has never been anywhere near Costa Rica.”

The Post continues: “Haney could be described — according to a New York Times tally — not as a mega-bundler but more a mini-bundler, raising only US$35,800 in the last campaign (through September 2012) and just under a piddling US$200,000 since 2007. (Contrast with Ambassador to Belgium Denise Bauer’s US$2.4 million in 2011-12 and US$4.4 million since ’07. Now that’s mega.) Haney also contributed 50 large for the Obama 2013 inaugural.”

Fiz Haney is head of business development and client service at Pzena Investment Management.

Under U.S. law, the next steps in the process are a confirmation hearing before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, a vote by that committee, and then a vote before the entire U.S. Senate. If approved by the Senate, Mr. Haney will assume his role as U.S. Ambassador to Costa Rica.
