The Paris-based National Council of Resistance of Iran is working with former New Jersey Senator Bob Torricelli's Rosemont Associates to promote political change in Iran by educating policy makers and the general public about the "injustice of the current Iranian regime," according to a federal filing.
Under the oral agreement between the two parties, Rosemont receives $35K a month.
Working with legal firm Mayer Brown in D.C., Torricelli, known as "The Torch" in his Senate days, helped pave the way for the recent delisting of the Mujahedin-e Khalq, another Iranian opposition group, from the U.S. State Dept.'s list of foreign terrorist organizations.
On behalf of NCRI, Torricelli will meet with U.S. government officials, counsel on overall strategy, and give speeches.
He is working on a month-by-month basis.
