First Lady's press secretary was 'forced out' after he was discovered doing this

 December 23, 2023

The Daily Mail just revealed part of the reason why Michael LaRosa - First Lady Jill Biden's former press secretary - resigned from the Biden White House during the summer of 2022. 

According to the outlet, it is because LaRosa was caught on multiple occasions bringing dates to his room, which was on the secure floor of the same hotel where the president was staying.

The problem, of course, is that, in doing so, LaRosa was jeopardizing the security of the president and first lady.

The Daily Mail claims that this is part of the reason why the Biden administration and LaRosa parted ways. But, as we will see, there may be more to the story.

The allegation

The Daily Mail cites a "senior White House staffer" for its report.

This individual is quoted by the outlet as saying that LaRosa "was caught by Secret Service not once, but twice bringing dates to a secure floor, obviously putting the First Lady's safety at risk because you're not supposed to bring people in who are not fully vetted."

This is reported to have taken place in June 2022, when LaRosa accompanied Jill Biden to the NATO Summit that was held in Madrid, Spain. This took place roughly a month before LaRosa's resignation from the Biden administration.

The Daily Mail reports, "A Secret Service source confirmed the incident and claimed that it happened twice on the same trip."

The Daily Mail claims, based on its sources, that this is part of the reason why LaRosa left the Biden administration.

Departed on "good terms"?

At the time that LaRosa resigned, both he and the White House tried to make it seem as though LaRosa was departing on good terms, and LaRosa is sticking to this narrative.

The Daily Mail reports:

Asked about the incident, LaRosa, who is openly gay, told that he had only tried to bring one person up to his room, a male staffer from another country's delegation he said he met at the conference. He also insisted that he left the White House on good terms to take a job in the private sector.

But, it turns out that there might be more to this story - other than sneaking dates onto the president's secure hotel floor.

The Daily Mail reports:

When he left, White House officials publicly feted him for his 18 months of service in the East Wing. But privately, sources tell, colleagues were anxious to see him gone with no fuss. "There was a long line of chaotic behavior, outbursts, unreliability, unpredictability, and lack of judgment that went into his last six months before his departure," one official said.

As for why these sources are speaking out now - more than a year after LaRosa's departure - they told the Daily Mail that it is because LaRosa recently started publicly criticizing the Biden White House.
