[Ed. – The wording sounds like Mr. Emhoff would fill a role similar to that of previous “Second Ladies.” He would presumably not be involved in policy or decision-making. The point seems to be that he doesn’t plan to continue working at his firm.]
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.
