Homeland Security Starts at Home

Homeland security apparently runs in Congressman Peter King’s family.

King’s son, Sean, started working at former U.S. Senator Alfonse D’Amato’s Park Strategies lobbying firm in February. The firm represents several clients with multi-billion dollar Homeland Security contracts, such as General Atomics and Lockheed Martin. They have also made campaign contributions to Congressman King.

When asked about his son’s activities, Peter King responded with this statement, via his spokesman.
“Sean is involved in private oversees development. He has lived in Taiwan, Singapore and Japan – he is not a lobbyist, does no lobbying, and has no dealings with my office whatsoever.”

Still, small world.
