Watchdogs Demand Transparency as Corporations Pour Millions into Biden-Harris Inauguration

HeadlineJan 21, 2021

Government watchdogs are demanding transparency over donations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s inaugural committee, after it accepted gifts of up to $1 million from corporations and wealthy individuals. Major donors to the inaugural include Amazon, Boeing, Capital Group, Comcast, Fidelity Financial, Google, Microsoft, Qualcomm, UPS, United Airlines and Verizon. In 2019, House Democrats proposed an ethics bill that would cap inaugural donations at $50,000, while requiring the online disclosure of major donors.
