A Democrat running for Senate in South Carolina filed his financial disclosure forms.
What a difference 10 years makes when you're a lobbyist.
Harrison, now running for U.S. Senate in South Carolina, last had to file a financial disclosure in 2008 as a high-paid staffer for Rep. Jim Clyburn (D., S.C.). At the time, Harrison had no reportable assets and significant liabilities, disclosing credit card and loan debt together between $140,004 and $365,000.
But Harrison left Clyburn's office, where he was earning a six-figure salary, in December 2008 to join the now-defunct Podesta Group, where he went on to represent the interests of a who's who of corporate giants—Walmart, BP, Bank of America, Boeing, Merck, and Google.
The work paid off, according to a new required financial disclosure Harrison submitted Monday night. Harrison, who left the Podesta Group at the end of 2016, now reports assets of up to $3.45 million.
Good work is you can get it.
