Biden Administration Gaffs, Scandals, and Broken Promises

Scandals

The Biden Administration is a continuation of the earlier Obama Administrations using the same policies, procedures, and practices. Biden said on the campaign trail that there wasn't even a whiff of scandal in the Obama Administration. It is true that there was little reporting on scandals in large part because of its lack of transparency. See Daniel Alman's book, The Least Transparent Administration in History: 1,375 examples of Barack Obama's lies, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy, waste, etc. (2020, ISBN 9781724180353). This is the pattern the Biden Administration will take in the many Federal departments, agencies, commissions, and offices.
