Former Obama Aide Robert Gibbs May Join Facebook

Facebook is trying to hire Robert Gibbs, the former White House press secretary and Barack Obama communications director. Gibbs, who left the White House in February, would report to Facebook’s Elliot Schrage as a member of his communications, marketing and public policy team, according to a report by DealBook. Many executives from Silicon Valley–especially from Google–have gone to work for Obama, but this would be a significant move in the other direction.

Please see the disclosure about Facebook in my ethics statement.
