Packwood Returns

The disgraced former Oregon Senator Bob Packwood has returned to work in Washington as a lobbyist on tax reform, the tobacco industry, and the balanced budget amendment. Packwood resigned his seat in the Senate less than two years ago amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

“In American politics today, you can achieve rehabilitation very quickly,” said Larry Sabato, a political scientist at the University of Virginia.
