Kathryn Lehman is not making it a secret that she used to work for Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Texas).
“Well, I’ve never been shy about the fact that I worked for the House Republican leadership,” said Lehman, a partner at Holland & Knight who formerly worked as an aide for several GOP leaders, including ex-Speaker Dennis Hastert (Ill.).
“And clearly this is no time to be shy about that fact. I’ve been through the good times and the bad times as a House Republican — so yes, I’m telling people about my relationships.”
Lehman is one of many GOP lobbyists, most of them former Republican leadership aides, who stand to benefit from their party’s takeover of the House.
