So Sen.-elect Ron Johnson has just hired his chief of staff, Don Kent.
While the official release describes Kent as a former Dept. of Homeland Security worker, that’s not Kent’s only job experience.
After leaving DHS, where Kent worked for Michael Chertoff, Kent became a lobbyist at Navigators Global, where he “heads up the Homeland Security practice.”
Now that he’s been elected Ron “citizen legislator” Johnson is making it pretty clear he’s not the Washington D.C. outsider he claimed he’d be during the campaign, but I’m not one bit surprised that Ron Johnson would pick a Washington insider – and someone with no ties to Wisconsin no less – to serve as his chief of staff.
