Bob Ricker dead
Brady Campaign eulogy here. I knew him before he turned his coat and went with them, and he was a decent guy. The version they give is a bit sanitized... his change came more like the group he was was supported by gun makers, but got too close with the other side. Funding ended, and he's looking for new work, and Brady Campaign was scouting for such folks. (I know they'd scout, from experiences of a friend who got laid off, but refused to turn coat).
Always wondered how he kept his legal license. A lobbyist or consultant can turn coat (look at Dick Morris!) but a lawyer has obligations to keep his secrets. He'd represented a gun manufacturer group for years, and then he becomes an expert witness in suits against gun manufacturers. Everything he knew that was relevant would come from his prior representation. Maybe he represented the organization rather than each manufacturer -- but that being a membership organization, I can't see that making a difference.
