Washington lawyer Timothy Broas, ‘who has funnelled more money to the political campaigns of president Barack Obama than nearly anyone else’ has been nominated as the next US ambassador to the Netherlands, the Washington Times reports.
Broas collected more than $500,000 for Obama’s 2012 campaign from family members, colleagues and other wealthy associates, the paper says.
Broas is a partner in law firm Winston & Strawn, which has offices in 15 countries. According to the firm’s website, he specialises in white collar and internal investigations and was named in the 2010, 2011, and 2012 editions of Best Lawyers in America.
The senate has to vote in favour of the nomination before Broas officially has the job.
