Interior Secretary Deb Haaland may have violated financial disclosure reporting requirements, according to an ethics complaint being filed Wednesday by federal watchdog Protect the Public’s Trust.
In her required financial disclosure, Haaland’s only source of assets she reported was a “Tribal annual per capita payment” of $175. She also reported having $15,001 to $50,000 in student loan debt.
When asked on the disclosure forms about positions held outside of the federal government and her income and retirement, Haaland wrote “None.”
Michael Chamberlain, the group’s director said, “If the Biden administration is to live up to its promise to be the most ethical and most transparent in history, it would be prudent for Secretary Haaland to go above and beyond the bare minimum reporting requirements.”
