From Congressional Quarterly:

Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., has placed a blanket hold on all executive nominations on the Senate calendar in effort to win concessions from the Obama administration and Pentagon on a variety of fronts affecting his home state, according to aides to Senate Majority Leader Reid.

Reid should have expected this. Once it became obvious that he would pay bribes, it’s only natural that more people would start making demands.
