Mike Scanlon.



Scanlon, who joins the firm as a SVP, spent the last two years serving

as communications director for House majority whip Tom DeLay, a GOP

power player who made his presence felt during last year’s impeachment

proceedings.



While the DeLay communications staff is known for being partisan,

Scanlon drew high marks from the news media for being pleasant,

informative and cooperative, according to one journalist.



Scanlon’s successor on DeLay’s team is Jonathan Barry, who was last seen

as press secretary for the ill-fated presidential campaign of former VP

Dan Quayle. Barry, however, didn’t feel that the media was to blame for

Quayle’s troubles this time around, citing fund-raising difficulties and

a crowded field of Republican contenders.
