Posted on 12/05/2016 10:45:30 AM PST by PROCON
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has a new consulting job less than a year after he ended his presidential campaign.
Bush will act as a strategic consultant for the law firm Buchanan, Ingersoll & Rooney and its clients. Clients include several large pharmaceutical companies, energy companies, sugar advocacy groups and fantasy sports giant DraftKings. The firm announced Bushs hire in a statement to the Tampa Bay Times.
Those of us who have had the pleasure of working with the Governor in the past now have the opportunity to do so again, and those who havent can look forward to a truly rewarding experience, John McKager Mac Stipanovich, chair of Buchanans Florida government relations department, said in the statement. This is an exciting development for the firm and for our clients.
Many of the top names at Buchanan are veterans of the Bush network. Stipanovich advised Bush on his gubernatorial campaign in 1994 and ran Florida operations for late President Ronald Reagans 1984 campaign. Jim Magill, a principal for government relations at the firm, directed legislative affairs for then-Gov. Bushs administration, and now represents clients like the U.S. Sugar Corporation and DraftKings.

Hope he’s more successful than his “fantasy politics” career....
I thought he had a new job working for his father’s presidential library at Texas A&M?
Sounds as exciting as boiled prunes..................
Jeb’s so multi-talented, he can work at screwing up several things at the same time.
It’s probably a good fit for him, and DraftKings is probably the least of the firm’s worries, I think. As long as he continues to stay out of national politics, I wish him well.
He’s good at fantasies. He fantasized about being President.
Sounds like he has gotten a job where he can screw things up that don’t even exist!
Fantasy Sports Law Firm - What? Handles contract disputes between dwarf, elf & hobbit sports teams?
I won’t joke about him. (although I admit I just backspaced over one). He was a pretty good governor and I wish him well.
I somehow get the feeling that this job category has never existed until last week. Sort of like Michele Obama’s very expensive job as Hospital Consultant. Just another way to pipe lobby money from one source to another.
What does that mean? Is he supposed to be a "rainmaker?"
Actually, I know one of the people that runs that place. She’s an old friend of mine from Iowa.
They’re going to give him a $100 million budget and mandate him to use it to generate $1 million of sales.
Connected folks like Jeb! can hold many of these types of jobs at once. Because all you’ve got to do is allow them to put your name on the letterhead, and then show up for a few meetings each year.
Big paychecks for doing next to nothing.
So is “sleep walking” a new fantasy sport?
He kept pulling a push broom they had to fire him
