Protect the Public’s Trust, a government ethics watchdog group, filed another complaint Thursday with the Office of the Inspector General at the U.S. Department of Energy regarding Acting Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) Kelly Speakes-Backman possibly having repeated ethics violations.
The watchdog group notes that Speakes-Backman served as Energy Storage Association’s (ESA) CEO before receiving her political appointment in the Biden administration. The group alleges that she “may have violated ethics commitments and the Biden Ethics Pledge.”
