Vice President Kamala Harris and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg joined forces on Thursday to promote Proterra, a Burlingame, California-based electric bus company that Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm previously sat on the board of and held stock in, which garnered her $1.6 million when she finally divested them 157 days after her nomination.
“It appears as though the Biden Administration is continuing to promote Proterra, the company connected to Energy Secretary Granholm. It is a positive sign that Transportation Secretary Buttigieg has replaced Secretary Granholm considering her conflicts of interest with the firm,” Michael Chamberlain, the director of the government watchdog group, Protect the Public’s Trust, told Breitbart News exclusively.
“We hope this is a harbinger that the Administration is moving in the right direction with respect to potential conflicts of interest involving high-ranking appointees. Despite this seemingly positive development there remain several outstanding complaints filed by Protect the Public’s Trust regarding Administration officials’ potential conflicts,” Chamberlain added.
