Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) chief counsel, Ron Weich, will be nominated by President Obama for head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs, reports BLT: The Blog of Legal Times.
Weich held different committee assignments from 1989 to 1997, including time as counsel to Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Penn.) on the Senate Judiciary Committee, counsel to the Senate Labor and Human Resources Committee, and counsel to the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution. Weich then spent eight years as a lobbyist at Zuckerman Spaeder. Some of his clients included the American Civil Liberties Union, the American Psychological Society, and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights. Since then, Weich has been the top lawyer for Reid and helped shepherd then-Attorney Genral nominee Eric Holder through his confirmation hearings.
