Legendary Lawmaker Brown Becomes Lobbyist

Former California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown, legendary as a politician who could get his way and charm the birds out of the trees, has been hired for a year to represent the recently formed Communities for California Card Rooms.

Known as a peacemaker, Brown’s mission will be to help the group build its membership and smooth over disagreements. He will also be something of a lobbyist for the group, although he is not legally registered as such, but rather as a consultant.

Last year, Brown was a consultant for a group that was pushing the legislature to legalize internet poker in the Golden State.
