Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Former Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh has picked up another new job as a partner with a Washington, D.C., law firm.

The firm of McGuireWoods announced Monday that Bayh would be partner in its Washington office and would be a strategic advisor to domestic and international clients on public policy matters involving Congress, the executive branch and state governments. Bayh will also be a senior advisor to McGuireWoods Consulting, the firm's public affairs branch.

The 55-year-old Democrat's 12 years in the Senate ended in early January after he opted last year not to seek a third term.

Bayh has also joined the New York-based private equity firm Apollo Global Management as a senior public policy adviser.

  • good example
    Yet another example of the revolving door of politics and big business. A politician serves a few years in a public office and then takes a high paying job based on the connections they made.
  • Who cares?
    If Evan's as as proactive and successful in his new jobs as he was as a governor and senator, he'll not do much damage.

    They bought a name and an empty suit.
  • Big Surprise
    Why should we be surprised?
  • vigo county

  • AKA
    LOBBYIST.
