Six lobbyists made over $1 million in the six months since the 2018 election, new reports show. WTOP reports Gerard E. Evans – who filed activity reports showing work for 59 clients – reporting being paid $2,434,333.32 between Nov. 1, 2018 and April 30, 2019. Evans’ biggest client was Northeast Maglev, who paid $313,564.97, to garner support for a proposed high-speed magnetic levitation train that would shuttle commuters from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore in 15 minutes. Evans was also paid $203,564.97 by the Law Offices of Peter Angelos, which sought to change how tens of thousands of asbestos cases are adjudicated in the state. The figures come from semi-annual reports filed by lobbyists to the Maryland State Ethics Commission, which released aggregate earning and spending reports last week
