CFPB Director Richard Cordray did not come close to matching his success in 1987 when he returned last night to Jeopardy!  Mr. Cordray participated in the show’s “Battle of the Decades,” which brought back former champions to celebrate the show’s 30th anniversary.  

In 1987, Mr. Cordray won $45,303 as a five-time champion.  Last night, he came in second, winning $5,200.  According to news reports, Mr. Cordray’s current job prevents him from accepting, or even donating, his winnings.
