An ethics watchdog group launched an investigation into possible ethical violations from improper gift-giving and influence-peddling at the wedding of Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland.
Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT) submitted Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests with the Office of the Solicitor FOIA Office to uncover any “Records relating to Secretary Haaland’s wedding, including potential attendance by prohibited sources and improperly reported gifts.”
“While we offer our congratulations to the Secretary, we remain committed to carrying out our mission,” PPT wrote in a press release. “Which requires us to protect the public’s trust that senior government officials are carrying out their duties in an objective, transparent and compliant manner.”
