The U.S. Senate is holding hearings on President Trump’s cabinet picks. And his nominee for Secretary of Education is raising eyebrows because of a court case in Ohio.
During a recent teleconference, U.S. Sen. Rob Portman said he couldn’t answer questions about fines owed to Ohio by a political action committee created by Secretary of Education nominee Betsy DeVos.
“I don’t know the details of it. I haven’t heard about this yet.”
Portman later issued a statement saying he was told DeVos was not a party to this lawsuit.
