Royal Dutch Shell Plc  .com Rotating Header Image See How They Spin

February 15, 2007

From a press release issued by the Republicans of the Senate energy committee:

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Pete Domenici, ranking member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, today announced that Matthew Letourneau will become Republican communications director for the committee effective March 5.

Letourneau, currently the deputy press secretary on Domenici’s personal staff, will replace Marnie Funk, who is leaving the committee to become Vice President of Communications/Washington for The Royal Dutch Shell Group.

See the revolving door spin? From public service to private profit; from spinning for the GOPers on the Hill to spinning for Big Oil on K Street. Is there much of a difference–that is, except for the paycheck?
