I previously posted about Jamie Gorelick’s hiring as a lobbyist for Sallie Mae, the student loan agency. After the debacles she created by raising the wall between law enforcement and the intelligence services, and at Fannie Mae, I thought she was doing quite well for herself.
Thanks to Doug Ross (who coined the phrase “Mistress of Disaster“) for reminding me of Gorelick’s role as a Sallie Mae lobbyist, and how she failed miserably since the federal government now has taken over the student loan business directly.
Failure in Washington seems to be a selling point, not an impediment.
What else is Gorelick up to? She’s representing a coalition pushing for a rewrite of online privacy laws:
The groups plan to announce four principles, buttressed by legal analyses including one by Jamie Gorelick, a former deputy attorney general now in private practice at a Washington, D.C., law firm, according to one source. The principles apply only to government access to data stored by Internet and telecommunications companies and do not regulate the private sector or private litigants.
What possibly could go wrong?
Jamie Gorelick At It Again
Maybe Jay Bybee and Jamie Gorelick Should Be In The Dock Together
