Former Log Cabin Head Joins Trump Administration

The Washington Examiner reports:

The drug czar has a new spokesman, longtime Washington politico and communications adviser Gregory Angelo. The latest addition to the Office of National Drug Control Policy was most recently the communications director for Texas Rep. Pete Olson. He also served as president of the Log Cabin Republicans, a national gay and transgender GOP organization. As president, he welcomed the 2016 nomination and election of President Trump.

Angelo last appeared on JMG in May 2019 when he petitioned Mitch McConnell to block the Equality Act from seeing a vote in the US Senate. The bill had just passed in the US House on a 236-173 vote and indeed never saw action in the Senate.

The Office of National Drug Control Policy was created during the Reagan administration at the height of the crack epidemic. Under its charter, the drug czar “must oppose any attempt to legalize the use (in any form) of illicit drugs.”
