Obama's female CIA deputy director pick once ran bookstore that featured 'Erotica Nights' reading
Washington, June 14 (ANI): President Barack Obama's choice for CIA's deputy director will be a woman, Avril Haines, who owned a bookstore that featured regular erotica readings.
Haines, a legal adviser to the national Security Council, will be the deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency after the current director, Michael Morell, is set to retire in August.
According to the New York Post, Haines before rising through the ranks to become one of America's top spies opened and co-owned Adrian's Book Cafe in Baltimore that featured a regular 'Erotica Nights'.
She will be the highest ranking woman to ever serve in the CIA
The then-24-year-old Haines opened the bookstore in 1994 when she dropped out of a graduate programme in physics at Johns Hopkins University.
With her 29-year-old pilot boyfriend, Haines renovated a boarded-up old strip club in Baltimore's waterfront neighborhood and turned it into the regular meeting place for a small community of erotica aficionados, the report said.
Haines, 43, has been a White House deputy assistant and deputy counsel for national security affairs since 2010.
The White House statement said before that, she was assistant legal adviser for treaty affairs at the State Department.
Haines has participated in virtually every senior-level meeting at the president's National Security Council over the past two years and chairs the White House legal team that reviews the CIA's most sensitive programmes, the report added. (ANI)
