Toomey For Senate: StateImpact PA Highlights McGinty’s Trips Through The Revolving Door

NORTH WALES — A new microsite launched today by StateImpact Pennsylvania, a collaboration between local NPR affiliates, highlights Katie McGinty’s vast experience with the revolving door. The new project, titled “Energy, Environment & PA’s Blurred Lines,” helps illustrate just how many times McGinty has overseen the energy industry as a government official, then gone to collect a paycheck from those industries afterwards.


In fact, McGinty was the clear “winner” of all the listed officials, with two high-level government posts and five paid corporate board memberships in related sectors

“Katie McGinty’s entire resume amounts to trips back and forth through the revolving door between government jobs and corporate boardrooms,” said Toomey for Senate spokesman Ted Kwong. “Letting McGinty take another lap via the U.S. Senate will only help her own ambitions, not middle-class families in Pennsylvania.”
