Libya paid more than $750K in fees since September to The Livingston Group for its work to improve ties with the U.S. That sum generated half of the firm’s foreign fees.

The firm of former Speaker-designate Bob Livingston organized events at Libya’s Embassy, met with Senators/Congressmen, pitched corporations (ExxonMobil, Carlyle Group, Northrop Grumman) and squired a military delegation around D.C., according to TLG’s federal filing.
Former Hill & Knowlton staffer Lauri Fitz-Pegado is among TLG staffers working the account.
She traveled to the World Economic Forum in Davos in February with Saif al-Islam al-Gaddafi, the head of the Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation and eldest son of Libyan leader Col. Gaddafi.
He talked about human rights, role of a civil society, climate change, education and training.
Libya formalized ties with the U.S. in `08, 20 years after its agents blew up Pan Am Flight 203 over Lockerbie, Scotland.
