Washington — Former Senator Claire McCaskill, Stand Up Republic co-founder Evan McMullin, and former White House Counsel Beth Nolan are joining the board of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.
Before joining CREW’s board, McCaskill represented Missouri in the Senate for 12 years, following eight years as the state’s Auditor.
“In the Senate, I promoted bipartisan oversight and fought to stem the tide of dark money in our electoral system,” McCaskill said. “I’m excited to join CREW’s board to continue to fight against the corrupting influence of money in politics.”
A former CIA officer and chief policy director of the House Republican conference, McMullin leads Stand Up Republic, a non-profit fighting to maintain the norms of our democracy.
“Our democracy is facing unprecedented threats from foreign adversaries and our own unscrupulous leaders, especially including our president,” McMullin said. “Preserving our ethical standards and demanding accountability for political corruption are essential to liberty and justice in America. I’m proud to join CREW’s board to further this bipartisan cause.”
Vice President and General Counsel of the George Washington University, Nolan was also the first woman to serve as White House Counsel.
“I am honored to be joining CREW’s board in support of its critical mission to promote ethics and transparency throughout the government,” Nolan said. “This work is especially important now, when so many of our ethical norms are subject to a wide range of challenges.”
