International Business Times: DeVos Has Invested Millions Into Company Claiming To Treat ADHD, Autism
Betsy DeVos didn’t divest her multi-million dollar stake in a controversial “brain training” company when she became Donald Trump’s education secretary. Now, as the Better Business Bureau is accusing the company of making unsubstantiated claims in its advertising, financial records show DeVos has actually increased her stake in the company by more than $1 million in recent months.
“I don’t think it’s appropriate and it’s troubling,” Larry Noble, the senior director and general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center, told IBT. “At the very least there’s an appearance problem… Even after the issue was raised, she goes out and buys additional stock. That shows a tone-deafness to ethics issues.”
