White House Assistant Chef Sam Kass Faces Furlough

New, 5 comments

Budget cuts are coming to the White House, and assistant chef/Senior Policy Advisor for Nutrition Policy/muppet dancer Sam Kass may be among those asked to take a furlough. While Obama Foodorama notes that it has not been confirmed by the White House, both the New York Times and the AP both report that Kass is among 480 employees to be put on furlough.

Kass is the director of Michelle Obama's Let's Move campaign and is in charge of the White House's vegetable garden. He tells the AP that he doesn't think the furlough will affect Let's Move.
