Ex-NYC Congressmember Joe Crowley Joins Corporate Lobby Firm

HeadlineFeb 21, 2019

Former New York Congressmember Joe Crowley has joined the corporate lobbying firm Squire Patton Boggs. The 10-term congressmember was defeated in a stunning upset in last year’s midterm primary by then-28-year-old Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The lobbying firm represents fossil fuel interests, the arms industry and a private prison company, among others. Some of its clients include Gulf Energy Alliance, which promotes oil and gas drilling, and the conservative Koch-backed Policy and Taxation Group. Former Republican Congressmember Bill Shuster is also joining the firm.
