Mercedes Schlapp makes CBS issue correction for claiming Biden adviser ‘first Latina in top West Wing role'

Schlapp, a conservative political consultant, slammed O’Keefe’s reporting on Twitter, pointing out that she was a “senior adviser and assistant to the president” when Trump was in office. CBS News corrected the article soon after.

O’Keefe broke the initial version of story to Twitter on Wednesday morning, tweeting, “FIRST FROM @CBSNews: @POTUS Biden is promoting @JulieCR46 to senior adviser and assistant to the president, making her the most senior #Latina to ever serve in a West Wing staff job.” 

CBS News incorrectly reported Wednesday that Julie Rodriguez was the first Latina senior adviser to the president in history, though Mercedes Schlapp and Cecilia Munoz held that position before.
