Facebook Chief Privacy Officer Chris Kelly Running For Attorney General of California

Posted May 4, 2009

Chris Kelly is making an attempt to return to politics.  Kelly is the former Clinton campaign and White House staff member.  Kelly is currently the Facebook chief privacy officer and head of public policy.

“Ever since I worked in public life when I was very young, I thought it was something that I might do at some point,” stated Kelly.  “Over the past few years at Facebook, it’s become clear to me that the role of the attorney general is incredibly able to help make change in the world, and that’s what I got into technology to do, too.”

While Kelly’s team is campaigning, he will be staying with Facebook.  He also implied that he will not formally step down from the company unless he wins the election.
