Jobs for the boys Mr Trump?
Mr Trump has been accused of ignoring the law with an intention of offering his daughter’s husband a post as senior advisor in the White House.
The 1967 anti-nepotism law states:
‘A public official may not appoint, employ, promote, advance, or advocate for appointment, employment, promotion, or advancement, in or to a civilian position in the agency in which he is serving or over which he exercises jurisdiction or control any individual who is a relative of the public official.’
Washington University expert Kathleen Clark, believes that if the appointment of Mr Kushner goes ahead, it may have huge implications for Mr Trumps presidency. Ms Clark said that even if the best person for the job just so happens to be a relative, it undermines confidence within the organization and there can be confusion as to the seniority and importance of the relative’s role. However, not all states have anti-nepotism laws and so it is not seen as an actual offence.
So, is Mr Trump pushing the boundaries to see what he can get away with or is this a deliberate violation of government ethics? One thing’s for sure, this isn’t your local friendly firm encouraging the staff to ‘refer-a-friend’ in return for a bonus in their monthly pay.
As we always say, we do not guidance on matters pertaining to the law, but let’s see what the cards say on this particular issue.
