Democrat Evan Bayh has spent the past three years involved in a lobbying campaign for his hometown NFL team, the Washington Redskins.


Bayh is currently running to regain the Indiana Senate seat he retired from in 2011 to become a partner at McGuireWoods, a major D.C. lobbying firm.


Lobbying disclosure forms show that McGuireWoods, where Bayh remains a partner, was brought on by the Redskins in July 2014 to defend the organization from legislative action aimed at forcing it to change its name, which many view as a racial slur toward Native Americans.


McGuireWoods was hired to have “discussions of team origins, history and traditions” in the House of Representatives and Senate, according to filings. The firm also reported that it would assist with the Original Americans Foundation, which was created by the team to assist the Native American community and quiet critics.Scissors-32x32.png
