In yet another example of government positions being for sale in the Trump administration, the Palm Beach Post is reporting that Donald Trump will soon nominate high-end handbag designer Lana Marks, a Mar-a-Lago Club member, to become the U.S. ambassador to South Africa.
Marks would become the 4th Mar-a-Lago Club member to be given an ambassadorship.
From The Palm Beach Post:
The potential nomination of yet another Mar-a-Lago member to a top post in the administration may again raise questions about whether Trump is doling out favors to those who can afford Mar-a-Lago’s $200,000 membership fee, annual dues of $14,000 and a $2,000 minimum dining requirement.
In more than a dozen past lawsuits against her in Aspen, New York, California and South Florida, Marks has repeatedly been accused of stiffing her attorneys, accountants, landlords and employees. She is also embroiled in bitter, international legal battles in South Africa and Israel with her siblings over a family trust and the care for their 89-year-old mother.
