Jim Manley to Quinn Gillespie

In December, when we last spoke with 20-year Hill veteran Jim Manley, he said he was leaving the Capitol and “casting as wide a net as possible” as he looked for a job in the private sector. Apparently the net was really, really wide and included more than eight months of serious chilling in places like Fort Lauderdale, London and Paris.

But now we’re hearing that the highly regarded former spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has landed a job as a senior director at Quinn Gillespie, the public affairs and lobbying shop, joining a bipartisan team headed by former GOP aide and communications guru John Feehery, who once handled press and communications on the House side for former majority whip (later majority leader) Tom DeLay and former speaker Dennis Hastert.

Al Kamen, an award-winning columnist on the national staff of The Washington Post, created the “In the Loop” column in 1993.
