Labor Nominee Scalia Earned Millions from Big Business

Labor Nominee Scalia Earned Millions from Big Business

President Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Labor, Eugene Scalia, made over $6 million as a partner at the corporate law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher according to CNBC.

Scalia’s financial disclosure form filed on Friday shows his legal work for some of the largest companies and financial institutions in the country, including Facebook, Walmart, Ford Motor Company, the Chamber of Commerce, Chevron and the American Petroleum Institute. He also performed legal work for the insurance companies Allianz and UnitedHealth Group.

The son of late associate justice Antonin Scalia wrote in a letter to the department’s ethics program manager to inform him that he won’t take part “personally and substantially in any particular matter in which I know that I have a financial interest” without a waiver. He also vowed to resign his position at the firm and several other positions, such as his post at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and his status as a trustee of his revocable family trust, if he’s confirmed by the Senate.

The previous labor secretary, Alex Acosta, resigned amid renewed scrutiny of his deal with the late convicted sex offender and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, which he made almost a decade ago. Current acting secretary Patrick Pizzella has recently come under fire over his relationship with the disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
