Many of the new spending bills signed into law by Joe Biden have provided financial benefits to companies and other clients who once retained the consulting services of top White House adviser Anita Dunn.
According to the Daily Caller, Dunn previously served as a consultant with the public affairs firm SKDK, which she founded in 2004.
Her clients included companies such as Pfizer, AT&T, and Micron, among others.
As a result, Dunn, who is now serving as a Senior Adviser in the Biden Administration, has been forced to recuse herself on any issues related to past clients.
“Both White House ethics officials and OGE reviewed and certified Ms. Dunn’s financial disclosure report (OGE Form 278), and, as is customary for all new employees, she has received rigorous counseling regarding her recusal obligations,” said White House spokesman Chris Meagher.
“In addition to statutory/regulatory requirements, she is recused under the Ethics Pledge from participating in any particular matters involving SKDK and any clients that she worked for in the previous two years.”
