Kamins’ firm built the Sheraton Grand Hotel and Capitol Place office complex, which were one of DC’s largest private developments in the ‘80s. He has been a major fundraiser for pro-Israel PACs and the GOP. Kamins became the chair of Newt Gingrich’s GOPAC in ’97, long after this PAC hit its zenith as the financial arm of the ’94 Republican revolution. Kamins’ GOPAC chairmanship came on the tail of a two-year congressional ethics investigation of Gingrich that resulted in a reprimand and a $300,000 fine for misleading Congress. Kamins defends that episode as “a badge of honor.”
