Ex-Google Boss Eric Schmidt Helps Fund Dozens of Jobs in President Biden’s Administration

From a story on politico.com by Alex Thompson headlined “Ex-Google boss helps fund dozens of jobs in Biden’s administration”:

Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google who has long sought influence over White House science policy, is helping to fund the salaries of more than two dozen officials in the Biden administration under the auspices of an outside group, the Federation of American Scientists.

The revelation of Schmidt’s role in funding the jobs, the extent of which has not been previously reported, adds to a picture of the tech mogul’s growing influence in the White House science office and in the administration – at a time when the federal government is looking closely at future technologies and potential regulations of Artificial Intelligence.
