President-elect Joe Biden’s inaugural committee will refund a donation from former Sen. Barbara Boxer after the California Democrat registered as a foreign agent for a Chinese surveillance firm accused of abetting the country’s mass internment of Uighur Muslims, officials tell Axios. 
Why it matters: Boxer’s contribution was just $500, but the Biden team’s decision to return the money shows how the incoming administration will try to balance its sweeping ethics commitments with K Street efforts to enlist high-profile Democrats with an eye toward advancing clients’ interests in Biden’s Washington. 
WNU Editor: She got exposed, and now it is all about damage control …. Barbara Boxer ‘deregisters’ as foreign agent for Chinese surveillance company that targeted Uyghurs (FOX News). 
Of all the Chinese companies that she could work for she choose Hikvision. That company’s ties to the Chinese government, military, and intelligence services have been well known for years. 
I was part of a star-up a few years ago to develop software for behavioral recognition, and we all knew then to avoid these companies because of their ties to the Chinese government.
I am sure that former Senator Boxer knows who she is dealing with. But she choose anyway because they probably offered her a truckload of money.
