The First U.S. Federal Official To Be Sworn In On An Ebook Reader Was?

The President
A Congressman
An Ambassador
The Secretary of State

Answer: An Ambassador

The long history of swearing your oath of office with your hand on a revered document (be it the Bible or the Constitution) recently got a 21st century overhaul. On May 30, 2014, U.S ambassador to Switzerland and Lichtenstein, Suzi LeVine, was sworn into her position using a Kindle ebook reader instead of a print copy of the United States Constitution.

Although the first federal employee to be sworn in on a digital device, she’s not the first U.S office holder to do so. Earlier in 2014, New Jersey firefighters and a Nassau County Executive were both sworn in using a copy of the Bible on an iPad.
