A Bit More on the Tom Davis ‘Revolving-Door’ Saga
Yesterday we ran a post raising a red flag on Rep. Tom Davis’s (R-Va.) claim that his new, seven-figure consulting gig is not representative of the “revolving door” that so often lands former lawmakers in high-powered K-Street firms by simple virtue of their ties to Congress.
Today, Davis spokesman Brian McNicoll took exception with the implication that Davis used his years in the Capitol to land the plum position. McNicoll said Davis, a former counsel to a Virginia-based technology firm, “went out of his way” to find a position in which he wouldn’t be lobbying his former Hill colleagues directly. A statement from his new employer, Deloitte Consulting, indicates that Davis will offer “strategic guidance to help us better serve the federal government.”
Readers can decide if the “revolving door” label applies.
