Bob Dole cuts a sympathetic figure. He makes his lonely treks around North Carolina campaigning for his wife, Elizabeth Dole. He's quite a bit older than Liddy who is 71 and I'm sure all this campaigning is wearing him ragged. He's also a WWII veteran.
With that in mind, you'd think that he would be a voice for other veterans which certainly doesn't explain why in 2004 he chose to lobby for a company that cheated veterans and their families. According to the Senate Lobbying Database, First Command paid Bob Dole's firm $140,000 for Dole to lobby on their behalf. The firm contracted with Dole on September 23, 2004. About two weeks prior to that date the U.S. House of representatives voted to ban the sale of the First Command Mutual Fund to military families.
