Controversy

"Days or even hours before her reported July 13 [2000] appointment as the Speaker [of the House Dennis Hastert]'s defense and foreign policy chief, Nancy P. Dorn was a lobbyist with Hooper, Owen & Winburn, where she was a registered agent of Hutchison Port Holdings, a subsidiary of Hutchison Whampoa Ltd., which won control of ports at the Atlantic and Pacific sides of the Panama Canal under suspicious circumstances." [2]

"In an October 1999 Washington Post article on GOP lobbyists, Dorn, a Texan, was described as a member of the 'kitchen cabinet' of House Majority Whip Tom DeLay, Texas Republican." [3]

At the time of her nomination in 2001, Dorn was Legislative Affairs Assistant "on the staff of Vice President Dick Cheney." Prior to joining Cheney's staff, Dorn "was the national security adviser to House Speaker Dennis J. Hastert (R-Ill.)." [5]

Dorn "became the youngest person and the first woman named assistant secretary of the Army for civil works" under President George H.W. Bush "and later served as member" of the Inter-American Foundation under President William J. Clinton." [6]

From 1986 to 1988, she served as a deputy assistant for legislative affairs at the Department of State before becoming a special assistant for legislative affairs for President Ronald Reagan (1988–1989). Dorn continued to hold this position for another year (1989–1990) into the administration" of President George H.W. Bush. Dorn "then served two one-year stints, first in the Defense Department as deputy assistant secretary for Inter-American affairs, and then in the Department of the Army as assistant secretary of civil works." [8]
