Director of US Ethics Office Resigns
Today, Director Walter Shaub Jr. submitted his resignation from the U.S. Office of Government Ethics (OGE). Shaub, in his position at the OGE, has repeatedly questioned various possible conflicts of interests of President Trump and of members of the president’s White House staff.
Shaub will leave his position on July 19 and begin working at the Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan organization of election-law experts based in Washington, D.C. “At the Campaign Legal Center, I’ll have more freedom to push for reform. I’ll also be broadening my focus to include ethics issues at all levels of government,” Shaub told NPR.
