In the U.S., Gbagobo hired

In the U.S., Gbagobo hired Lany Davis (Bill Clinton's former personal lawyer and good friend of the Clinton family) to advocate on Ivory Coast's behalf. The episode sparked a minor media campaign around a conflict of interest developing in the U.S. State Department, embarassing the Clintons and forcing Davis to drop his client. Davis other clients include Obiang from Equatorial Guinea and Pakistan prior to 9/11.
