The White House pulled its April 26 nomination of Washington attorney Timothy Broas as ambassador to the Netherlands on Thursday.
The move came after Broas was allegedly charged with drunk driving and resisting arrest in Maryland last week, the Center for Public Integrity's website iWatchNews.org reported.
Broas is a top Obama campaign fundraiser.
According to the Obama campaign, Broas has helped raise more than $500,000 for the 2012 reelection effort. By law, Broas cannot contribute all that money himself -- so he, like other so-called "bundlers" serves as a fundraising point person and collects money from others to donate to the campaign.
These bundlers are frequently rewarded with prestigious positions -- in the administrations of President Obama as well as his predecessors. The Center for Responsive Politics estimated that Obama nominated two-dozen fundraisers to ambassador positions within his first year in office.
Broas is a lawyer with the Washington, D.C., firm Winston & Strawn, representing high-profile clients like UBS Securities and Papa John's International.
He was previously appointed by Obama in 2010 to a trustee position with the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
