A top official within President Joe Biden’s Justice Department resigned before a conservative group received documents on her tenure via a Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request. Pamala Karlan, an official in the Civil Rights Division quietly resigned from her post after joining the DOJ in February 2021.
The Daily Wire reports:
Pamala Karlan left the Justice Department as the American Accountability Foundation (AAF) was set to receive a trove of information on the conditions of her employment. In addition to working for the Civil Rights Division, Karlan is also a law professor at Stanford University, where she draws an annual salary of close to $1 million, according to The New York Post.
AAF raised concerns about Karlan’s arrangement, saying the duel employment was an unacceptable conflict of interest for a federal official responsible for prosecuting misconduct and upholding the rule of law.
“As the old cliche goes, you cannot serve two masters. Pamela Karlan was a paid employee at Stanford University when she was supposed to be serving the Department of Justice,” AAF founder Tom Jones said in a statement. “Not only that, she was using her perch as the highest-paid government employee to push her radical-Soros agenda like suing states for protecting their elections and pushing trans-ideology on kindergarteners.”
“And President Biden and Merrick Garland enabled this unethical sweetheart deal to go after Americans. We’re glad that after our inquiries into this extremist, Trump-impeachment witness Pamela Karlan resulted in her quiet disappearance from the DOJ,” he added.
Double dipping may be legal but it’s not very becoming, especially for a Stanford professor.
AAF should also look into Congresswoman Dina Titus’s arrangement with the University of Nevada Las Vegas where she has been a Professor for a number of years.
