The Chairwoman of the Alabama Republican Party has been hired as a consultant for a lobbying firm that often works on the behalf of gambling and casinos interests.
Chairwoman Twinkle Andress Cavanaugh took a consultantâ€™s job at the lobbying firm Capitol Resources of Jackson, Miss. even though her party is deeply opposed to gambling and casinos.
Capital Resources, which is one of Mississippiâ€™s foremost lobbying firms, represents the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, which owns gambling and casinos operations in Mississippi and the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi.
Chairwoman said that she took the job with the stipulation that she would not be assigned to cases involving gambling and casinos.
“That’s in my contract. I won’t touch anything related to gambling,” Cavanaugh said.
Henry Barbour, a partner in the firm and a nephew of the state governor, said that he asked Cavanaugh to come to work for Capitol Resources after they met at the Republican National Committee in Washington in 1994. Barbour said that the chairwoman had told him and his firm ahead of time that she would not take on any cases that were related to gambling and casinos.
“Before she came to work for us, she made it clear she would not represent gambling interests,” he said.Online Poker - World Poker Tournament pokerthrow.com
