Feather wears many hats. He is a name partner in the phone bank consulting firm Feather Hodges Larson Synhorst - later renamed FLS-DCI, then FLS Connect. The company boasts an endorsement from George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove on its Web site: "I know these guys well. They become partners with the campaigns they work with."
In 2000, Feather acted as political director of the Bush-Cheney campaign. For the 2004 elections, FLS-DCI was paid $26.9 million by Republican candidates and party committees for telemarketing and get-out-the-vote phone calls, including $7.6 million for its work on the 2004 Bush campaign, federal filings show. Feather also co-founded Progress for America, a group that produced some of the most effective television advertisements during the Bush re-election campaign.
Feather also worked as a contract lobbyist for DCI Group. Many of his clients sought access to the White House.
