Meena Harris latest Biden, Harris family member to face scrutiny over business ventures | Fox News

The White House has come out and stated that Vice President Kamala Harris‘ name will not be permitted to be used in conjunction with any commercial endeavors that could be seen as having her support, after a report said lawyers told her niece Meena Harris to stop using her name to help her brand.

Meena Harris has leveraged her relationship with the vice president in the past, including for her children’s book, “Kamala and Maya’s Big Idea.” Days before the inauguration, she appeared on “The Today Show” and promoted her new book, “Ambitious Girl,” as images of her and her aunt were shown on television.

The White House now says that this will not be allowed.

“The Vice President and her family will uphold the highest ethical standards and it’s the White House’s policy 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,” Sabrina Singh, Deputy press secretary for the vice president told Fox News.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a White House officials said that after November’s election transition team ethics lawyers told Meena Harris not to use Kamala Harris’ name or likeness, she still marketed items inspired by her.
