Top Biden adviser leaves the White House amid finance disclosure controversy

Amid questions concerning her failure to fulfill financial disclosure obligations resulting from her role as a senior advisor to President Joe Biden, Anita Dunn is departing her White House post effective immediately, as Fox News reports.

According to the outlet, Dunn now intends to begin serving as an external advisor to the president, much as she did during the administration of former President Barack Obama, and while she always intended her tenure with Biden to be short-term, she ultimately ended up staying longer than anticipated due to battles over infrastructure spending and other policy priorities.

A longtime operative in Democrat circles Dunn is a co-founder of political consulting form SKDK, which will again serve as her base of operations as an outside sounding board for Biden and his inner circle, as Fox News further noted.

Dunn’s tenure drew scrutiny in recent days after it was reported that she did not complete the typical public financial disclosure required of those serving as presidential appointees.

As Fox News reported separately, federal law mandates such disclosures unless the individual in question is a “special government employee” who works fewer than 130 days and earns a salary of less than $132,500.

The outlet did some calculations based on the number of calendar days and workdays that have passed since Dunn assumed her position, finding it unlikely that she met the threshold for the days-worked exception, and despite the network seeking comment from the White House in response, none was forthcoming.

According to governmental ethics lobbyist Craig Holman, Dunn’s time at the White House was not as brief as initially billed and that the role in which she has served “qualifies her as a government employee subject to the disclosure and ethics rules,” as Fox News added.

What makes the situation particularly concerning is the fact that a number of clients of Dunn’s consulting firm, SKDK, have significant stakes in several of the administration’s key policy intiatives, and those include IBM, Comcast, Pfizer, Microsoft and Ford, according to Fox.

Given that Dunn first gained national notoriety back in 2009 when, while serving as an advisor to former President Obama, she declared brutal Chinese dictator Mao Zedong to be among her “favorite political philosophers,” it should probably come as no surprise that she views disclosure and transparency laws as something intended only for the little people.
