Sen. Kamala Harris’ husband Douglas Emhoff is reportedly leaving his job at the law firm DLA Piper for a spot in the Biden administration (if to comes to pass).

From The Hill:

Douglas Emhoff, the husband of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, is leaving his law firm, DLA Piper, for a role in the Biden administration.

Emhoff will officially leave DLA Piper by Inauguration Day on Jan. 20, a Biden campaign spokesperson confirmed. Emhoff took a leave of absence from his firm in August as Harris ran on the Democratic ticket.

“Mr. Emhoff is working with the Biden-Harris transition team to develop the portfolio he will focus on to support the work of the administration,” the spokesperson said.

He will be the first man to be a spouse of a vice president after Harris made history as the first woman elected vice president.

Emhoff is a partner in the firm’s Los Angeles office, and his firm profile says, “Mr. Emhoff is currently on a leave of absence from the firm.” The same note was on his profile in August when he first announced his leave.

He joined DLA Piper in October 2017 and his specialties include media, sports and entertainment, as well as intellectual property and technology, litigation, arbitration and investigations.

He is licensed to practice in California and Washington, D.C. DLA Piper has a lobbying arm, but Emhoff is not a lobbyist.

“He represents large domestic and international corporations and some of today’s highest profile individuals and influencers in complex business, real estate and intellectual property litigation disputes,” his firm profile reads.

What exactly Emhoff’s role in a potential Biden administration might be though? No reports on that yet.

What exactly Emhoff’s role in a potential Biden administration might be though?

Probably similar to Hunter Biden’s role in Burisma.

Grifter wagon train!

Maybe he took lessons from Ilhan Omar’s hubby #3.

So, according to the Dems now, putting family members on government payroll is no longer a terrible, awful thing. Good to know.

    He couldn’t be on the government payroll. Trump could only hire Ivanka and Jared because they’re not being paid. And it would have to be a position in the white house, not at an agency or department.

      Why do you believe that Doug could not be on the government payroll?

      Which statute, and which application would preclude him from appointment? He is not a “relative” of Biden, nor does Harris have any appointment power at all (she does not serve in an “agency,” nor does she have Constitutional jurisdiction over any agency).

        Milhouse in reply to Publius_2020. | November 12, 2020 at 3:31 pm

        Good point. Formally it would be Biden hiring him, not Harris, so they could get away with it. So long as Harris doesn’t become president.

You might think he would have waited till the race was finished. Not called by the apparatchik.

All about the Benjamins. Government pays better. Let the grift commence.

    He wouldn’t be on the government payroll. He’d have to be working for free, like Hillary, Ivanka & Jared.

      You may be referring to the set of rules for thee, not for me….

        Milhouse in reply to rduke007. | November 11, 2020 at 7:09 pm

        I’m referring to the anti-nepotism law, which the courts will enforce whether Harris likes it or not. But she knows the law, so I’m sure he will be given a job that is legal, i.e. an unpaid job within the white house.

          Publius_2020 in reply to Milhouse. | November 12, 2020 at 9:16 am

          5 USC 3110 does not apply, because Harris has no appointment power, nor any executive jurisdiction under the Constitution. Doug Emhoff is not a relative of Biden, so Biden could appoint him to any position he likes.

          Unless you’re thinking of a different nepotism statute.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | November 12, 2020 at 3:31 pm

          No, I was thinking of that one, and you’re right.

          Publius_2020 in reply to Milhouse. | November 12, 2020 at 6:37 pm

          It is a common misconception that the Vice President is a member of the executive branch. In a Constitutional sense, the Vice President is a legislative officer, with no executive branch authority. The position is really “President of the Senate, who shall be second in line in the event of the death or disability of the President.”

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | November 12, 2020 at 9:22 pm

          Yes, you are exactly right. The VP used to be paid out of the senate’s budget. Some time around the 1940s it was moved to the executive budget for some reason.

          If you watched the Palin v Biden debate in 2008, you will remember that Palin stated, correctly, that the VP was part of the legislative branch, while Biden, who has probably never read the constitution, insisted that it’s an Article II position and has no significant role in the legislative branch. Of course she was right and he was bullshitting, but to an uninformed viewer it didn’t look that way. He looked confident and knowledgeable, while speaking utter ignorance, whereas she came across as someone who didn’t really know how things worked.

      Even working for free… the information is worth more than a regular job…

Going to work for Hunter.

I wouldn’t be so fast to quit my friend…

The smell of Hunter cash is strong, hope also he is unemployed very soon.

Trump is going to need soldiers to keep Joe Brains’ family and Kamallah Harris’ family from invading the White House and VP’s residence if a recount, audit, and litigation process goes his way.

And then all of the Dems will be out of work. For a little while at least, until a network or Netflix gives them money for doing nothing.

OleDirtyBarrister | November 11, 2020 at 7:31 pm

Maybe they should have Chelsea Clinton’s TV agent on a retainer, just in case.

It’s an inside track to the 25th Amendment.

A GOOD bagman doesn’t get put on the payroll . . . He takes a little bit out of the bag and no ones the wiser. I imagine Mr. Kamala Harris Hubby will be a VERY VERY good bagman.

Mr. Kamala Harris, ambassador to China. Or Russia? Or Iran?

Wherever he can do the most damage, that’s where he’ll be.

I’m sure Feinstein can find him a job since her Chinese spy is gone.
6 of one, half dozen of another.

Another “nationwide search” as Howie Carr has pointed out before. We see plenty of this in Massachusetts.

We were told *constantly* for the last four years that having relatives working in the White House was the mark of the Devil himself, proof positive that evil was afoot and

Oh, (D) administration now. Rule goes away.
