    Elan Carr, a former prosecutor in the Los Angeles district attorney’s office, will be appointed as the State Department’s Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, according to several sources. This position, established by the Global Anti-Semitism Review Act of 2004, has been vacant since January 20, 2017.

    Last September, the House of Representatives first passed the “Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism Act of 2018,” which requires the president to appoint an official to the post within 90 days of its passage, and within 120 days of the position’s vacancy.

    From 2012 to 2014, Carr served as Alpha Epsilon Pi’s ‘Supreme Master’ on the fraternity’s ‘Supreme Board of Governors.’

    Carr is a veteran of the United States Army and served as a judge in the Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corp. He was also a Deputy District Attorney in Los Angeles County. In 2014, Carr ran against Rep. Ted Lieu in an unsuccessful bid for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Sheldon Adelson has been a significant donor to Carr’s recent political campaigns, donating $100,000 in support of Carr’s bid for Los Angeles County supervisor in 2016.
