"Craighead was part of the "Team Abramoff" cadre of lobbyists at Cassidy and Associates, the DC-based lobbying firm where Jack Abramoff once worked," Roy Temple wrote December 28, 2005.

Before joining Cassidy & Associates, Craighead "most recently was Director-Regulatory Compliance at SBC Telecommunications, Inc., where he worked to ensure that various business units were aware of and meeting their regulatory obligations," according to the C&A announcement. Prior to that, Craighead "interfaced with the Federal Communications Commission and the Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division working on long-distance applications for the company."

Craighead was "the second person from Rep. Blunt’s staff to join Cassidy & Associates [that] year following the recent hire of Gregg Hartley as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer," the announcement said.
