Polaris Government Relations
Both Gans and Blackwood were lobbyists with the now defunct firm Alexander Strategy Group, which closed after being tied to convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff and disgraced House majority leader Tom DeLay. 
Polaris has several former ASG clients, including BellSouth, U.S. Telecom Association, Xcel Energy and the Association of Kentucky Fried Chicken Franchisees, which retained Polaris to lobby on "estate taxes, 'frivolous obesity suits,' the minimum wage and avian flu."
