Government ties

Stephen "was a high-ranking legislative aide to the District of Columbia's former delegate to Congress, Rev. Walter E. Fauntroy, in the 1980s. Horblitt is an expert on Haitian and Caribbean Basin affairs. National Journal reported that Horblitt and Fauntroy had "close ties" to the March Bazin, the prime minister of the military regime that deposed Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the country's democratically elected president. While employed by Creative, Horblitt started a "Haiti consultative group," made up of individuals from the State Department, U.S. Congress, The World Bank and private companies. The group didn't lobby and claimed to have no position on Haiti's internal politics, but Horblitt told the National Journal that they reached a consensus that the U.S. embargo of the country and its military regime was disastrous."
