Manatos Attacks Destructive Washington Politics

In what is purportedly an attempt to come to the rescue of an embattled friend, veteran Washington DC lobbyist and former Assistant Secretary of Commerce Andrew E. Manatos penned a damning piece in his Huffington Post column discussing the disastrous impacts of dirty Washington DC blame-game politics that seek to discredit elected officials.

The investigations and prosecution of Senators Ted Stevens, John McCain and national hero John Glenn come to mind, as does the impending case against Senator Bob Menendez,” Manatos writes.
