After Attacking Gingrich as Lobbyist, Romney Endorsed by One

February 29, 2012
On Wednesday, Mitt Romney's campaign touted the endorsement of former Montana Gov. Marc Racicot, who, Romney said "has spent so much time in the service of this country" as an Army officer, prosecutor and governor.

What the campaign failed to mention is that after leaving the governor's mansion, Racicot worked as a registered lobbyist and later earned millions as the president of the American Insurance Association -- an even more explicit brand of "influence peddling" than the kind Romney attacked Newt Gingrich for earlier this year.

At a January debate, Romney tore into Gingrich for trying to defend his work for Freddie Mac as that of a historian. "You can call it whatever you like," Romney told Gingrich. "I call it influence peddling."

Asked to square the endorsement of a lobbyist after attacking Gingrich for being one, a Romney spokeswoman did not return a request for comment.
