Usha Vance helped husband JD Vance chart his political path

“We need to honestly and aggressively attack universities in this country,” said Vance, whose mother-in-law is provost at the University of California, San Diego. “Universities do not seek knowledge and truth,” he added. “They pursue deception and lies.”

This world, in turn, began to reject Mr. Vance. Before September 2021 wedding of Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld – a daughter of Ms Chua – several guests asked not to be seated next to the Vances, according to two people who attended the wedding. (The couple ultimately didn’t attend because their children had the flu and Ms. Vance was due to give birth to their third child soon, according to two people close to the Vance family.)

Ms. Vance returned to Munger, Tolles & Olson in 2019. Her work has included helping to defend the University of California against allegations that it violated Title IX, and the Walt Disney Company against allegations of violation of law. author.

According to a former and current lawyer at the firm, some employees of Munger, Tolles & Olson are confused and disappointed by Ms Vance’s support of her husband’s Trumpian turn and his rhetoric on gender and immigration.

In 2018, the couple purchased a 5,000-square-foot Victorian Gothic home on several acres in an upscale, liberal-leaning neighborhood on Cincinnati’s east side. The house, which cost $1.4 million, dates back to 1858 and is considered an important house by local historians. It has a grand staircase, green grounds for their dogs, Pippin and Casper, and separate structures, including a two-story building near a swimming pool.

Ms Vance – who works remotely for her company’s offices in San Francisco and DC – is not widely known among the city’s establishment, although in 2020 she joined the board of directors of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. (Dianne Rosenberg, board chair and civic leader and patron of the arts in Cincinnati, declined to comment on Ms. Vance joining the board.)
