The consulting firm where the wife of acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf is an executive has been awarded more than $6 million in contracts from the Department of Homeland Security since September 2018, according to records on the federal government website USA Spending.

 

Wolf’s wife, Hope Wolf, is vice president of professional staff operations at Berkeley Research Group, a consulting firm. Although the company has a long history of federal contracts, it did not do work for DHS until after Wolf became the TSA’s chief of staff in 2017.

 

Kyle Herrig, founder and president of Accountable.US, a left-leaning watchdog group, said the $6 million in contracts may be a conflict of interest.

Herrig also noted that the largest asset listed on Wolf’s federal financial disclosure form is his wife’s $1.1 million retirement account at Berkeley Research Group.

“After Mr. Wolf joined DHS, it began pumping millions of dollars into his wife’s firm, which also happens to be his largest financial asset,” Herrig said. “The arrangement is highly problematic and warrants congressional scrutiny.”

So the grifting grafting double dealing using the government to enrich your self continues.  Where is that Republican claim of fiscal conservatism and government oversight?    Hugs
