Kamala Harris’s husband has quit his legal job for the White House role, despite his claims.
According to the Associated Press, on the opening day on January 20, Doug Amhoff will leave the DLA Piper, where there is a participant.
Mr Amhoff took a leave of absence from the firm in August when Vice President-elect Harris ran on Joe Biden’s ticket.
The future second man is reportedly working with Mr Biden’s replacement team to establish a role for him in the administration.
A Biden official told Fox News that Mr Amhoff was “working with the Biden-Harris transformation team to develop a portfolio that will focus on supporting the administration’s work.”
Mr. Amhoff joined DLA Piper in 2017 where he works with media, sports and entertainment clients as well as intellectual property and technology, litigation, arbitration and investigation.
Her DLA Piper profile reads, “Douglas Amhoff is a very experienced litigation and strategic advisor.
“Doug is known for dealing with and resolving problems – whether aggressively pursuing high-profile cases in the public eye or acting as a trusted advisor behind the scenes.
“Over the past 25 years, Doug has proven himself in courts and boardrooms across California and across the country.”
Mr. Hoff will be the Vice President’s first spouse after Mrs. Harris made history as the first holder of office.
Last month, Amhoff told People’s Magazine that he had no interest in joining the “kitchen cabinet” of advisers if his wife won the election.
“I’m her husband, that’s all,” said Mr. Amhoff.
“He has met many great people who give him political advice. I am her partner, I am her best friend and I am her husband. And that’s where I’m here to bring him back. ”
Mr. Amhoff and Mrs. Harris met on a blind date in 2013 and were married in a quiet ceremony a year later.
He lives in Brentwood, Los Angeles. Distributes a 5 5 million home in Washington, D.C. And apartments in San Francisco.
