Biden Nominates Dara Lindenbaum to the FEC
On January 21, President Joe Biden nominated Dara Lindenbaum to serve as a commissioner on the Federal Election Commission (FEC). FEC Vice Chair Steven T. Walther announced last week he would be stepping down as commissioner upon the nomination and confirmation of his replacement.
Lindenbaum, currently an attorney with Sandler Reiff Lamb Rosenstein & Birkenstock, P.C., previously worked with the Voting Rights Project at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. According to her profile on her law firm’s website, she also currently serves as General Counsel to Stacey Abrams’ campaign for Governor of Georgia.
With the appointment of Lindenbaum, there will be three registered members of the Republican Party, and three registered members of the Democratic Party. No more than three members of the FEC may be registered with the same political party. To become a commissioner, Lindenbaum must now be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
