This Atlantic has a profile this week on Lanny Davis, the longtime professional “fixer” of the Clinton family – which details how the lobbyist for Levick Communications is now selling citizenships to foreign islands.
The Atlantic writes:
“For a variable fee, beginning at just $250,000, you, too, can become a citizen of St. Kitts and Nevis. For even less, you can buy your way into Grenada ($200,000) or Dominica ($100,000).”
Davis is an attorney for the government of St. Kitts, and in peddling citizenships is hopeful “in getting this great little democracy—and a beautiful island that I’ve had an opportunity to visit—a chance to develop jobs, deliver health care, improve the quality of life of the people of this wonderful, beautiful paradise in the Caribbean.”
Prime Minister Harris of St. Kitts and Nevis explains it is all legal: “We are a responsible government, and we take our responsibility seriously – We are a respectable member of the international community.”
The funds go to St. Kitts Island’s infrastructure fund – or another local project, and account for 20 percent of the nation’s GDP.
Davis – who has had 43 emails released publicly thus far in the emails released in the Clinton scandal – works at Levick Communications.
