White House officials have expressed concern about Meena Harris' business dealings as it includes Vice President Kamala Harris's name in it.
Though Meena has said she would uphold the legal and ethical standards, Biden officials are not fully convinced about her following the spirit of the rules, according to a report by Politico. It said that soon after Kamala was chosen as Biden's deputy, Meena had pushed the Biden team to sell a shirt in the campaign store that she designed, which had a picture of a young Kamala. Meena’s company had produced a video with the Supermajority Education Fund and traveled to the inauguration ceremony on a Biden donor's private plane, which raised some doubts.
White House Officials and aides feel that Meena's activism can bring unwanted scrutiny on Kamala and have asked Meena to stop using her aunt's name and told her that she could no longer produce clothing or write new books with her aunt’s name or likeness.
Further, Sabrina Singh, a spokesperson for the vice president, has said in a statement that the Vice President's name should not be used in connection with any commercial activities that could reasonably be understood to imply an endorsement or support.
