Cassidy & Associates has amended its lobbying disclosure filings in the wake of a story in The National Law Journal, saying the firm’s original filings mischaracterized some of a former lobbyist’s meetings in the 10 days before she left to take a job with the State Department.
The story reported that Robin Raphel visited the State Department at least seven times for meetings on behalf of Pakistan while working for Cassidy, according to lobbying disclosure reports the firm filed with the Justice Department. One of those meetings was reported as taking place on July 31, the date Cassidy reported was her last day at the firm and the same day the State Department said she was sworn in as coordinator for economic and development assistance in Pakistan.
