Aide Got $1.9M Buyout

This staffer said Shockey mainly acted as a liaison for Appropriations to the House leadership, to other committees and to Democrats on the panel, among other duties. Lewis and Shockey decided that he would have no role in handling earmarks at the time Shockey joined the committee staff, and Lewis himself wrote to the ethics committee about Shockey’s buyout package at Copeland Lowery.

Such actions were “specifically done because of [Shockey’s] previous life,” the staffer said.
