Biden White House Adviser Hit with Ethics Complaint

The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), a government ethics watchdog, has filed a complaint against White House adviser Anita Dunn.

This is Dunn’s third tour with the White House.

The filing has hit Dunn for her “failure to file the required personal financial disclosure” prior to returning to the White House for duty.

Not Alone

The Complaint against Dunn reads, “Prior to her government employment, Anita Dunn was a founding member of SKDK, a corporate and political consulting firm, and worked for President Biden’s campaign in 2020.

“Since January 2021, Dunn has either been employed by the White House, worked for SKDK, or both at the same time.

“In spite of her senior advisor positions with the White House, Dunn has not filed a public financial disclosure report.

“The administration claimed that Dunn did not need to file a public report because she was classified as a ‘special government employee’ and her salary was below the threshold of $132,552 requiring public disclosure.”

The filing concludes, “As exemplified here, a government official’s failure to comply with the most basic ethics rules leads to public distrust in our government.

“Moreover, the following lack of transparency and consequences is especially harmful because it appears that the law does not apply equally to all.

“We request the Office of Governmental Ethics investigate and take appropriate action.”

Former Obama ethics boss Walter Schaub was also critical of Dunn coming back, stating that her “third rotation through the White House is an ugly sign of business as usual in Washington.

“Like many past administrations, this one is all too comfortable inviting influence peddlers through the revolving door, and in Dunn’s case that door is locked in a high-speed spin cycle.

“The last two times they set her pay below the threshold for public financial disclosure and a host of ethics requirements, despite her outsized influence, showing that they view ethics as merely a set of technical rules to be gamed.”

Schaub has been extremely critical of Biden during his brief time in office.

After the initial round of hirings took place at the White House, Schaub noticed how nepotism was running deep in this administration, something Trump had been hit for regarding his daughter working at the White House.

Biden has gone far beyond that, putting family members of key staffers and political allies to work throughout the administration.

At the time, Schaub called it “a real ‘f— you’ to us—and government ethics.”

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

BIDEN: "It's gonna take time to get inflation back to normal levels."

18 months ago, the Biden administration was calling inflation "transitory."

My message to President Biden at the White House today:
- Secure the border
- End COVID vaccine mandates in the military
- No more reckless spending

"I explained to the president what I saw [at the border]," says @GOPLeader.

"Where you can see the videos of these cartels literally shooting tracers at our National Guard, a woman hung because she didn't pay the cartel."
