Chamber of Commerce draws fire after a risky bet on Democrats

Caroline Harris, the group’s chief tax lobbyist, left earlier this month for a job at the lobbying firm Capitol Tax Partners, just as Washington gears up for a fight over raising corporate taxes to fund infrastructure projects. She joined a roster of recent departures that includes Rob Engstrom, a senior political strategist whose work with the U.S. Chamber ended in December; Stan Harrell, the group’s longtime chief financial officer; and Scott Reed, its political director. Harris, Engstrom, Harrell and Reed declined or did not respond to requests for comment for this story.
