Skip Humphrey Lands Federal Job

Hubert “Skip” Humphrey III will be assistant director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new Office for Older Americans.

Humphrey, son of the late vice president, will be in an office that helps senior citizens deal with finances, protects the elderly against deceptive businesses and deals with other similar matters.

“His advocacy for Minnesota’s consumers in his time as attorney general and his history of hard work on behalf of our nation’s seniors have given him the skills necessary to run this important new office,” U.S. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., said.

Humphrey was a state senator, attorney general and president of the Minnesota chapter of the American Association for Retired Persons. He is on the national AARP Board of Directors.
