Did Elaine Chao’s DOT Interviews Help Her Family’s Business?

Hana Callaghan, director of Government Ethics, is quoted in a Politico article.

"What troubles me about [Secretary Chao’s actions] is perhaps it may appear that a person in her situation is using her office and her position in order to publicize her father’s book, or this book about her family. That’s not a public purpose."

Director of Government Ethics Hana Callaghan quoted in an article in Politico.
