Former Wyden aide to lobby for ExxonMobil

Wyden said at the time that Kardon is "the most gifted political mind that I have ever known," adding, "[A]s his boss, I wish he’d work for me for another couple of decades. As his friend, I look forward to seeing the great things he will do next.”

Aside from Kardon, Jack Victory, who was a senior adviser to former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas), will also lobby for ExxonMobil through Capitol Hill Consulting Group.
