Donald Trump’s choice for his mouthpiece as White House Press Secretary and Communications Director was the hot-headed Sean Spicer. Sean Spicer ruffled just a few feathers last week when he said American will say “greater enforcement” of federal law on recreational marijuana.
Sean Spicer’s choice in marriage in 2004 was the booze-lauding Rebecca Spicer. Rebecca Spicer (nice LinkedIn) has been the Senior Vice President of Communications & Public Affairs for the National Beer Wholesalers Communication (NBWC) since 2007. The NBWC “represents the interests of America’s 3,300 licensed, independent beer distributors.”
Rebecca Spicer’s job for the NBWC is to “manage the communications strategy for the trade association…and executes key public relations strategies related to the association’s advocacy priorities.” In other words, its Rebecca Spicer’s job to make beer distributing companies look good–and to protect their best interests.
In some cases, that’s simply philanthropy:
However…what if that position means Rebecca Spicer slides behind closed doors in the White House or her bedroom and whispers sweet nothings into her husband’s ear about the danger of weed. Perhaps that a stretch, but with this administration and last week’s news on a potential legal weed crackdown coming from Sean Spicer’s mouth, is it wrong to point out a clearcut conflict of interest?
