Following President Biden’s firing of the Architect of the Capitol, J. Brett Blanton, CREW Senior Vice President and Chief Counsel Donald K. Sherman released the following statement:

“In a welcome win for accountability, President Biden has fired Architect of the Capitol J. Brett Blanton following bipartisan calls for his resignation from members of Congress,” said Sherman. “CREW led the call for Blanton’s ouster following his repeated and flagrant abuse of power and misuse of taxpayer resources. The response of Congress and the president is exactly the kind of oversight and enforcement we so desperately need from our elected leaders.”
