Two Democrat Senators, Tammy Duckworth and Mazie Hirono, Force Joe Biden To Hire Asian-American for Staff

Two Democratic senators who said they would not support President Joe Biden’s nominations to fill administration posts until the White House better promoted diversity reversed their stances today after the White House said it would add an Asian American Pacific Islander liaison to its staff. Sens. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois and Mazie Hirono of Hawaii had lashed out earlier in the day at the lack of Asian American and Pacific Islander representation in Biden’s Cabinet. The only senators of Asian American heritage, they said they would withhold their support for his nominees until the diversity issue was addressed.

Equity = Quotas.
