If you want to see Congressman Davis, you’d better call ICG, a company set up by his friend employing his wife and ensuring that only the well-heeled are allowed past the velvet ropes in
Of course, they do seem to be “gainin’”:
[quote]ICG’s relationship with Davis has played out on a number of levels. The firm has arranged for clients to meet with Davis in his congressional office. Upson has set up dinners and receptions with the lawmaker for his clients. And ICG has arranged for clients to testify before Davis’s committee. In one case, Upson’s team wrote the testimony. Some of those clients, who pay ICG about $8,000 per month, have told The Washington Post that their testimony was a part of marketing strategies developed by ICG to bolster the clients’ “clout” and “visibility” on Capitol Hill and with government contracting officials.
On one occasion, Upson helped a client write a threatening letter to the Pentagon that was then sent out with Davis’s signature on his committee’s letterhead.[/quote]
Like a puppet, Davis does whatever his GOP corporate buddies tell him.
