The Revolving Door Spins for Another D.C. Operator (Leaves W.H. for a Nuclear Power Company)

Dan Turton who lobbies the House of Representatives for the President is leaving his position on Thursday.

On Friday, he will start his new job with the energy company Entergy, which is the second largest generator of nuclear power in the country.

Pulling no punches about it being all about access and connections, Turton said in a statement:

I’ve made a career out of building relationships and doing government affairs and I think I’ve done it successfully. And they need someone to run their government affairs office.
In other words, things have gotten so corrupt in D.C. that these guys have no clue what laissez faire means and think business only gets done by schmoozing with government and getting special legislation. They are proud of this work.

  1. Is this the same Dan Turton, whose wife is Ashley Turton, who turned up dead?
