The White House declined to comment this morning on a Czech media report naming White House ethics czar Norman Eisen as the next ambassador to the Czech Republic.
"Can’t confirm and declining comment," White House spokesman Ben LaBolt e-mailed in response to questions about whether Eisen was headed for Prague, and who would take over his role as point person for the Obama administration on matters of ethics,lobbying restrictions and government transparency. Eisen, who was copied on the e-mail exchange, did not respond.
Eisen's current title is special assistant to the president and special counsel to the president.
In an interview last week with The National Law Journal , when asked if he would stay through President Barack Obama's first term, Eisen would only say that "This is the most fascinating job I’ve ever had, this whole array of issues. Every day is an adventure. The portfolio of issues is extremely varied. So I’m having a great time. I love it every day." For more of that interview, click here.
