Washington (AP) — President Joe Biden chose lawyer and TV personality Star Jones Lugo to lead a US government agency that identifies and protects historically important locations for the United States in Eastern Europe.
The White House announced on Friday that Jones will be chairman of the Continent’s Overseas Heritage Conservation Commission, which is tasked with protecting sites related to groups affected by Nazism, Communism and the Cold War.
Jones is a former prosecutor, former co-sponsor of ABC’s “The View,” and will be a judge on the television show “Divorce Court” this fall.
Biden, who elected seven members to the agency’s 21 unpaid board, also elected Bill Shaheen, the husband of Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, to the committee.
