Rep. Al Wynn Has A Conflict of Interest Writ Large


Rep. Al Wynn, who’s announced he’s taken a position with uber-lobbying firm Dickstein Shapiro, is going to have to watch his step to avoid any conflict of interest until he actually resigns in June.

A quick look at the firm’s 2006 and 2007 client lists begs the question, what’s can he possibly do in his remaining time that wouldn’t be a conflict with one of the firm’s clients? As The Washington Post wrote Sunday in an editorial titled "Mr. Wynn’s Ignoble Exit," the reason for his early exit is clear, "M-O-N-E-Y." The Post said it best, "Don’t let the revolving door hit you on the way out."
