Professional left targets Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao with unfounded allegations



June 10, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement blasting allegations by Restore Public Trust against Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao:

“It is clear that the professional left has its sights on attacking Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao in what is a coordinated campaign. Secretary Chao is being targeted for two reasons: she is an extremely effective conservative Cabinet member who is effectively pushing the Trump agenda and as a proxy attack on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“Secretary Chao has been her father’s daughter for her entire life.  For those on the left to suddenly discover after decades of dedicated service to our nation that her father runs a shipping business is disingenuous at best.  Secretary Chao has served with distinction not only as the Transportation Secretary, but before that as Labor Secretary, Deputy Secretary of Transportation and as Chairman of the Federal Maritime Commission.  She is perhaps the most qualified leader of the Transportation Department in history, and is scrupulous in following the rules.

“Attacks on her for maintaining a relationship with her father who is part of the regulated community are both unfair and unfounded. I am proud to have worked for Secretary Chao in the George W. Bush administration, and can attest that she is the exact kind of uber-competent Cabinet Secretary that America can be proud.”
