Think Progress, linking a subscription-only NY law website, says Tim Griffin is trying to use political leverage to land a job, but isn't having much success. Jeez, you'd think the outcome the last time he used his political connections to land a job might have discouraged a repeat.
“His timing is just bad,” says a Washington recruiter at a national search firm. “He’s a politico, not a litigator, which people just don’t care about. If you’re a U.S. attorney with no experience someone is not going to bring you on board to create or enhance a practice.”
One chairman of a national firm says his firm was contacted regarding Griffin but declined. “We got a phone call from a recruiter on his behalf but wouldn’t touch it with a 10-foot pole,” says the chairman. “Colleagues who I trust and respect said to take a pass.”
