AG Holder is a multimillionaire (and ex-lobbyist for UBS, Merck, Hewlett-Packard)
And that $3-million goodbye kiss from Covington & Burling surely left him with a deeply lovin’ feelin’ for that Bushevik outfit.
A revelatory–and forever timely–piece from last December.
Holder will get $3M payoff to leave firm for AG job

Eric Holder, President-elect Barack Obama’s pick for attorney general, has a net worth of $5.7 million and lobbied on behalf of three companies in the past five years, according to a questionnaire filed by Holder with the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Last year, he made more than $2.1 million as a partner at Covington & Burling, a prominent Washington law firm. The money is unsurprising given his high-profile client list, which includes companies like UBS Financial Services, Merck & Co., and Hewlett-Packard. He was also paid to sit on the boards of MCI and Eastman Kodak Company.
