WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden has chosen Star Jones Lugo, a lawyer and television personality, to head a U.S. government agency that identifies and protects sites of historic significance to the United States in Eastern Europe.
The White House announced Friday that Jones will chair the U.S. Commission on the Preservation of America’s Legacy Abroad, which is tasked with protecting sites affiliated with groups affected by Nazism, Communism and the Cold War.
Jones is a one-time prosecutor and former co-host of ABC’s “The View,” and will be a judge on the television show “Divorce Court” this fall.
Biden, who elects seven members to the agency’s unpaid 21-person board, also elected Bill Shaheen, the husband of Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, to the commission.
