One Ex-Googler Leaves Obama’s Administration
Andrew McLaughlin, one of several former Google employees who joined the Obama admninistration, resigned last week as Obama’s number two tech expert.
The news was first reported last week by Politico, which says McLaughlin was leaving to launch two start-ups. USA Today, however, reports today that McLaughlin isn’t sure what his future plans will include.
McLaughlin left Google in May 2009 after serving as Director of Public Policy and Government Affairs — essentially the company’s top lobbyist.
