Lobby Firm Is Scandal Casualty


Alexander Strategy Group, which had thrived since its founding in 1998 thanks largely to its close connections to DeLay (R-Tex.), will cease to operate except for a relatively small business-development division, Edwin A. Buckham, the former top DeLay aide who owns the company, said yesterday.

Buckham said in a telephone interview that the company was fatally damaged by publicity about the ongoing federal investigation into the affairs of Abramoff, who pleaded guilty last week to fraud and conspiracy charges

********************************************

Buckham said that he will be leaving the lobbying business and hasn't any regrets. "I'm at peace with all this," he said. "I'm not bitter. I'm not resentful. I harbor no ill feelings toward anyone. The important thing in life is having a clean heart and I do. I'm not even upset with the press."

REALLY?!?!?!?!

You're NOT upset with the press, interesting, considering that just a few paragraphs in the story, Buckham says this

"Reports in the press have made it difficult to continue as a lobbying/political entity," Buckham said.

And here's some of that pesky reporting Buckham claims NOT to be troubled by

Buckham's firm employed DeLay's wife, Christine, for four years. It also benefited by working closely with Abramoff. Abramoff's plea agreement mentioned his close ties to Tony C. Rudy, one of Buckham's colleagues at ASG, identified in the court papers as "Staffer A."

I think more & more of those around DeLay need to up their meds, especially if they're as seemingly schizophrenic and vacuous as Buckham appears

  • Buckham as been a friend of DeLays for years. From what I have read it was he and DeLay that set that company up. Lets hope the traditional press keeps on investigating.

  • WHAT INVESTIGATING? IF THE PRESS HAD DONE THEIR JOB IN THE FIRST PLACE, THIS KIND OF BULL WOULD HAVE BEEN NOTICED A LONG TIME AGO. THE PRESIDENT WOULD THEN NOT HAVE BEEN RE-ELECTED
