Opposing former President Donald Trump does more than get you a seat on the House Jan. 6 Select Committee; it might even get you a role in the Biden administration.
One of the chief Republican critics of Trump's seeking to root out election vulnerabilities is in talks to be Biden's pick to lead the Department of Homeland Security's election security division, CNN reported.
The state of Washington's secretary of state, Kim Wyman, is expected to be named the election security lead for DHS' Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), sources told CNN.
Wyman has been a vocal GOP critic of election fraud allegations, slamming the presidential election audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, on CNN's ''New Day'' in May.
''The precedence of this is just unnerving for election officials across the country, and it should alarm every American in the country,'' Wyman said.
As director of CISA, Wyman would help coordinate with DHS and state and local officials for resources to protect election infrastructure from hackers and voter disinformation.
''We work with election officials of all parties, and we have to be seen as supporting them and supporting the security of their elections, and not to be seen as doing anything that may be interpreted as partisan,'' current CISA Director Jen Easterly told CNN in August.
