A Covington & Burling lawyer-lobbyist who was doing some work for the tobacco industry on Medicade litigation and on tort-reform
1998 Oct 9: New York lawyer lobbyist Frank Fioramonti had a side business ghost-writing pro-tobacco articles as op-eds to be planted on newspapers by the industry. Here he writes to Keith Teel (Covington & Burling) and Neal Cohen (APCO) the two principle tobacco lobbyists on tort reform.
"I came across this turkey while checking the Internet tobacco sites [and] since the Tobacco Institute is leading the opposition charge, maybe they can find someone to submit this essay as an Op-Ed in the Californian media market."
