New York Times calls on 2020 candidate Buttigieg to release work history

New York Times calls on 2020 candidate Buttigieg to release work history”

Mayor Pete Buttigieg called on McKinsey & Company Friday to release its client list from Buttigieg's time at the prestigious global consulting firm, a response to criticism that he hasn't been transparent about his almost three years there. After a Democratic Party fundraiser in Boston on Thursday night, Warren blasted Pete Buttigieg, who is emerging as a leading moderate candidate in the lead-off Iowa caucuses set for February 3.

"The mayor should be releasing who's on his finance committee, who are the bundlers who are raising big money for him, who he's given a title to and made promises to", Warren said.

The supporters for Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, had rallied in his city on Wednesday night when they were interrupted by a protester in a "Black Lives Matter" shirt.

Buttigieg was in New Hampshire for a two-day campaign visit.

Warren has largely shied away from criticizing other 2020 candidates by name, but she called on Buttigieg to release the clients he worked for as a consultant for McKinsey for almost three years starting in 2007.

"I think the voters want to know about possible conflicts of interest", Warren said Thursday, after press reports pointed to McKinsey's recent contracts with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and other clients that Democrats revile. Buttigieg also said that because of a non-disclosure agreement, he couldn't release his client list, and that his campaign has unsuccessfully reached out to McKinsey multiple times to lift the NDA.

But in an interview with NHPR Friday, Buttigieg said McKinsey needs to release that information. But that didn't stop his senior adviser, Lis Smith, from chiding Warren over past legal work representing corporate clients.
