Where is He Now?
What happened to John Ashcroft?
He's a lobbyist now, of course.
"In addition to his lobbying work, Ashcroft is a law professor at Regent University, with campuses in Virginia Beach, Va., and Washington, D.C., run by televangelist Pat Robertson."
The Chicago Tribune has the details in the article titled, Lobbyist Ashcroft pulls in $269,000
He sure didn't waste time. The Ashcroft Group reported payments of $15,000 from ChoicePoint, a data broker that sells credit reports and other personal information to the FBI and other federal agencies, and $20,000 from Israel Aircraft Industries.
ChoicePoint hired the Ashcroft firm to solicit business with the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security, a ChoicePoint spokesman said.
