Trey Gowdy is from South Carolina and is no longer a member of Congress. Elizabeth Warren is from Massachusetts and is running for president. In ordinary times those things would not be vaguely related. But these are not ordinary times.

Yesterday, the Daily Caller ran sort of a puff-piece on Gowdy and what lies ahead for him: HERE IS WHAT’S NEXT FOR TREY GOWDY.

Trey Gowdy revealed his post-Congress plans Thursday.

The former Republican South Carolina representative will join Nelson Mullins, the South Carolina-based law and lobbying firm announced.

Gowdy, 54, worked at Nelson Mullins through 1994, when he left the firm to become an assistant federal prosecutor.

Joining Gowdy at Mullins’s white collar defense and government investigations team are his longtime chief of staff, Cindy Crick, and Sheria Clarke, the former staff director for the House Oversight Committee, which Gowdy chaired.

For reasons known only to her and possibly her medicine man, Elizabeth Warren used that article as a launching point to attack Gowdy as unethical.

As the article pretty well states, Gowdy is working within the white collar criminal law practice, not the lobbying practice. Even The Daily Beast noticed:

Then Gowdy, himself, lowered the boom:

He’s probably referring to the ridiculous video made by Warren gagging down her first beer and trying to look like a “regular guy”

or just the “firewater” in general.

At the rate it is going, Warren’s candidacy is going to self-immolate before the primary season gets serious and it will be weeks before anyone notices.
