Beason’s Clients

don-beason.jpgThe big revelation thus far today in the Jim Black state court sentencing hearing was the identity of the heretofore unnamed lobbyist who had provided the former Speaker with a loan of half a million bucks back in the summer of 2000: Don Beason.

Here is a list of his current lobbying clients according to the Secretary of State (you can read all of his clients going back to the 1993-'94 session — including the 2000 session — on the SOS website):
