News emerged Tuesday that Jill Kelley, the “other, other woman” enmeshed in the Petraeus scandal, has hired DC superlawyer Abbe Lowell as well as a crisis PR guru.Lowell is a Beltway power broker and has represented lawmakers, lobbyists, local governments, and even the actors Steven Seagal and Sean Combs.
But he seems to be the go-to lawyer for clients with high-profile sex scandals, including the one behind a criminal case against John Edwards.
Here are other sex-scandal-plagued clients of Lowell’s, according to his official law firm bio:
- Former senator John Ensign of Nevada, who had an affair with the wife of one of his staffers.
- Ex-Congressman Gary Condit, whose affair with DC intern Chandra Levy was exposed after her disappearance.
- Bill Boner, a former mayor of Nashville, Tenn., who appeared on the Phil Donahue show with a night club singer he got engaged to while still married to his third wife.
- Ex-Nevada governor Jim Gibbons, who was accused of groping a Las Vegas cocktail waitress in 2006. During the case Gibbons revealed he hadn’t had sex since 1995, a local TV station reported in 2010.
