Weld stepped down as governor of Massachusetts in an apparent miscalculation of the prospects of the Senate confirming him as President Clinton’s ambassador to Mexico. After this fiasco, Weld signed on with an international law firm, where Weld reportedly focuses on litigation and financial issues. Like Bush Pioneer James Connolly, Weld’s firm has lobbied for a piece of the “Big-Dig” Massachusetts Turnpike boondoggle that is more than $2 billion over budget. Robert Cordy, who was legal counsel in the administrations of Weld and current Gov. Paul Cellucci, also now works at Weld’s firm. Cordy and Weld reportedly helped Keane, Inc. win a Big-Dig-related contract to develop valuable land that the turnpike no longer needs.
