HARRISBURG, Pa. — The nation's first Department of Homeland Security secretary has agreed to serve as strategic adviser to an industry group led by companies drilling for natural gas from the Marcellus Shale formation. The group announced Friday that Tom Ridge's communications and policy groups will be paid $75,000 a month for help in such areas as public outreach, education and coalition building.

More political favors and benefits? Conflict of interest by hiring Ridge who knows the playbook for both sides here? Should be interesting to watch this play out.

So no one thinks this is suspicious or needs to be looked at closer?

CRONYISM is the only conflict of interest I see. Keep your mouth shut and we will give you a nice, cushy well paying position.

Can't believe you can't see this problem here.

Its only a job switch for this guy. Instead of getting paid by the US gov now he gets paid by big oil. Kinda like having a live in hooker who is otherwise respectable in every aspect.

In all, it may not be the case I'm willing to consider that as I'm pretty realistic about such theorys. But it DOES raise the proverbial eyelid for sure. Have a good one Dood!
