Tony West

Acting Associate Attorney General, U.S. Department of Justice

As the third ranking official at the Department of Justice, Tony West advises and assists the attorney general and the deputy attorney general with departmental policies ranging from civil litigation and public safety to federal and local law enforcement. Tony and his wife, Maya, are the proud parents of Meena Harris, who is following in dad's footsteps as a newly-minted attorney. They have a standing, weekly dinner date at her favorite sushi restaurant even though he admits that he hates sushi. (Photo: Chantal Costen/BET)
