Congresswoman Sanchez’s lobbyist connections have been explored on this blog before. As the clock ticks toward the midterm elections next year, new sources and allegations about what Rep. Loretta Sanchez has been doing with her lobbyist friends have been brought to my attention. Some may wonder why I continue to entertain the information from my sources in Washington, D.C., but I think that in an environment where people are becoming more aware of transparency and the influence of lobbyists on governing, it is worth examining.
This weekend I received a tip about Representative Sanchez and the Director of Federal Programs, Maritime Sector for Halcrow, Inc., who is a man named John Saylor. Allegedly, John Saylor has become romantically involved with Congresswoman Sanchez in recent months. Saylor chaired a conference on “Global Competitiveness and the Impact on US Exports” last month at the Department of Commerce in DC, and the Congresswoman was a scheduled speaker for this same conference.
Saylor, in his role as Director of Federal Programs, Maritime Sector for Halcrow, deals with issues relating to port security, which may come before the Congresswoman’s subcommittee on Border, Maritime and Global Counterterrorism. My source has revealed that John Saylor has been going around claiming to have slept with Loretta Sanchez and that he vacationed with her in Italy earlier in the year. This photo has surfaced, in which we can pretty much identify Congresswoman Sanchez, and the man behind her with his arms around her is supposedly John Saylor. First, there was an allegation about Jack Einwechter, now there is an allegation about John Saylor, and conveniently both men have business before the Congresswoman’s committees. Doesn’t this smell a bit like the Michael Duvall debacle?
One other thing that I did learn about John Saylor is that he, like Jack (John) Einwechter did in the past, contribute to Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez’s re-election campaign fund, dropping $300 back in July of this year.
This account provides just a glimpse into Loretta Sanchez’s priorities, as she represents California’s 47th Congressional district. If this photo was in fact taken in Italy, it should come as no surprise, as she was just there with the Semester at Sea program during the summer. Another source close to Sanchez had also revealed to me in the past that the Congresswoman had hopes of becoming the ambassador to Italy had Hillary Clinton won the presidential election last year. You can hear the interview she gave Semester at Sea here on youtube.
