I think it fair to take a close look at Tom Daschle's recent contacts, amended tax returns, and -- of course -- paid gigs. I also think "the best antiseptic is sunshine" -- so, while I am thankful we know about Linda Daschle's almost 10
20 years-past lobying, I don't think it will much influence the incoming HHS Secretary. This snippet is per the Houston Chronicle -- do go read it all:
. . . .Daschle’s wife did some work for the health care industry as well. In 1999 and 2000, Linda Daschle was among a group of lobbyists at Baker Donelson Bearman & Caldwell who represented the drug maker Schering-Plough, which paid the law firm $470,000 over the two years, according to federal lobbying reports. . . .
What so you think? Let me know.
