She was to co-lead Actum’s Washington office with fellow co-chair Mick Mulvaney, former South Carolina Congressman and acting chief of staff in Donald Trump’s White House.
Heitkamp said since Actum announced her recruitment she’s had several conversations with organizations and people who had expreseed concerns about potential conflicts of interests with Actum and her advocacy and non-profit work.
Though Heitkamp did not see any potential conflict, she believes that integrity demands that she avoid even the appearance of a conflict.
