Marc Short, chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, has come under scrutiny for owning up to $1.6 million worth of stocks in companies working with Pence's coronavirus task force to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
Short, a veteran Republican operative, joined Pence's office in 2019. He also worked as the White House director of legislative affairs in 2017 and 2018. Short previously served as chief of staff to former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-Texas) and directed the House Republican Conference.
Short has also worked for lobbying firms, most recently for Guidepost Strategies in 2018.
