1. One big happy family
Edited on Sun Nov-02-08 02:00 AM by btmlndfrmr

Connell was still in touch with the "old school politics" advocates from his past. Along with its Richfield, OH production facility, New Media maintained offices in two strategic locations. One was a Tallahassee, FL address and phone number the company shared with Tidewater Consulting. The other was the Washington, DC headquarters of the DCI Group, the scandal-plagued lobby shop run by GOP operative Thomas J. Synhorst. Just months after Bush's Florida win, the two would team up formally in Ohio to create DCI/New Media, L.L.C.

Connell's ongoing alliances with Synhorst, whose firm in push-polling are worrisome. These alliances strongly suggest that despite a decade to reflect, Connell had not renounced the crooked tactics for which he'd been fired. And that perhaps all he'd learned from the experience was to avoid getting caught.

In any case, just two years after being formed, DCI/New Media, L.L.C. was dissolved.

But prior to its dissolution, Connell and Synhorst launched GovTech Solutions, L.L.C, what may be their defining partnership, a New Media spin-off to handle its "government web site accounts."
