Description

"This story traced how Alex Flint, a protégé of unabashed nuclear industry booster Senator Pete Domenici, parlayed his post as clerk of Domenici's powerful appropriations subcommittee into a lucrative lobbying job for the nuclear power industry. When Domenici ascended to the chairmanship of the Senate's Energy Committee, he lured Flint back at about one-third his lobbyist's salary to spend three years pushing the Energy Policy Act of 2005 through Congress." Afterwards, Flint was "rewarded with the nuclear industry's top lobbying job."
