The lengths lobbyists will go to to keep the gravy train running...
Do not get between Haley Barbour and his RICE BOWL
“The lengths lobbyists will go to to keep the gravy train running...”
Haley Barbour is scum of the earth and always has been.
Prior to holding elective office, Barbour was a prominent lobbyist and co-founder of the Washington lobbying firm BGR Group.
Barbour soon became a Republican political operative and moved up the ranks of Republican organizing quickly, running Gerald Ford’s 1976 campaign in the Southeast and working on the campaign of John Connally for president in 1980.
Barbour has been described as “one of Washington’s all-time mega-lobbyists.” He “was a wealthy K Street lobbyist for giant corporations such as RJ Reynolds, Philip Morris, Amgen, Microsoft, United Health, Southern Company, and many others.” In 1991, Barbour helped found the lobbying group now known as BGR Group, a Washington, D.C.-based lobbying firm, with Ed Rogers, a lawyer who formerly worked in the George H. W. Bush administration. In 1994, Lanny Griffith (also a former Bush administration appointee) joined the firm.
In 1998, Fortune magazine named Barbour Griffith & Rogers as the second-most-powerful lobbying firm in America
