Earlier today one person who commented on my post "Rand Paul's Latest Ad Raises Questions" suggested that Trey Grayson has some "strange relationships." Since then others have jumped on the suggestion and begun digging deeper into Grayson's relationship with the group who lobbied for AIG, "DC Navigators, LLC".
It will be remembered that only a few weeks ago the Grayson campaign proudly announced that they had received the endorsement of Dick Cheney. Today we learn that Cheney's daughter, Mary Cheney, has been an officer of the AIG lobbying firm.
Then it was revealed that Cesar V. Conda, the former Cheney aide who spearheaded the effort to undermine Rand Paul on behalf of Grayson, is a "founding principal" at DC Navigators, LLC, now known as "Global Navigators".
What seems to have developed out of this discussion is a much closer tie between Grayson and the firm which lobbied for AIG than might have originally appeared to be the case (merely hosting a beltway fund raiser for Grayson) as suggested by the "Washington Machine" commercial recently aired by Rand Paul.
Which of course raises an interesting question: why would those affiliated with this lobbying group be so opposed to Rand Paul and seemingly so favorable to Trey Grayson?
