Seems supper lobbyist Tony Podestra has hired Mr. Mary Landrieu (Frank Snelling) to sell a $1.89 million townhouse that he bought in 2009 using Mr. Snelling as an agent then too.
On the surface one might say that Mr. Snelling is an enterprising guy that has followed his political careerist wife around and adapted quite well.
One might say that or one might be more cynical and say Mr. Snelling is the bag man for bribes of Mrs. Landrieu. Mr. Podestra represents Lockheed Martin and BP. Mrs. Landrieu chairs the Homeland Security Appropriations subcommittee. She frequently advocates for BP. It seems Lockheed Martin is the fourth largest contractor of the Department of Homeland Security. LINK
Of course none of this is confined to just the Landrieu family. The political elite have been getting rich since the railroad days by manipulating government on behalf of deep pocketed special interest. Tauzin, Breaux, Lott, Delay, Gore, Clintons and on and on.
Big government is inherently corrupt.
