  • Baker, Carl G.
  • Baker, Howard
  • Baker, Ananias --In1905, a clumsy attempt at bribery virtually forced the Indiana legislature into prohibiting cigarettes. The measure had been passed by the Senate with the intention of embarrassing certain reform leaders in the House; the House as a whole was expected to hoot it down. However, right before the vote, Representative Ananias Baker dramatically held aloft a sealed envelope and announced that it had been given to him by a lobbyist from the Tobacco Trust, with instructions to vote against the bill, He opened it with a flourish: five $20 bills dropped out. The display seemed to confirm a prediction by the state's largest tobacco dealer, reported in an Indianapolis newspaper a few days earlier, that the trust would "buy up the whole House" before it would permit passage of the bill. Baker left his colleagues little choice but to vote for the bill, lest they be suspected of having been influenced by similar envelopes.

According to the February 9, 1998 issue of Newsweek, a tobacco lobbyist named William Hecht helped place Linda Tripp in a White House job during the Bush Administration. After the 1992 election, Tripp stayed on at the White House as a "confidential assistant" to White House advisor Bernie Nussbaum, a senior member of tobacco law firm Wachtel Lipton Rosen & Katz, which happens to be one of the leading law firms representing the tobacco industry. Later, Tripp turned over her accumulated Lewinsky tapes to Conway, who gave them to James Moody (no apparent tobacco connection), who gave them to Starr. . . Conway was the author of the brief that persuaded the U.S. Supreme Court to permit the Paula Jones case to proceed. (Newsweek reported that Conway never told his partners that he was active on this case.)

''The industry felt, then, and still does that if any case were lost or settled, there would be thousands of potential claimants.'' "[M]any industry officials in 1953 felt that claims about smoking and lung cancer could be disposed of summarily by opening some laboratories and proving in very short order that the claims being made were wrong. . . In the minds of most company officials there was just no substance to the claim that smoking cigarettes caused lung cancer.'' --Lost Empire

  • A member of RJR Nabisco's Board of Directors and President Clinton's supposed friend, agreed to help Monica Lewinsky find a job in New York. According to Newsweek, Jordan got her an interview at Burson-Marsteller, a public relations firm that happens to have Philip Morris as a long-standing client and is currently managing the grass roots movement in California to overturn the smoking ban in bars. According to Newsweek, Lewinsky "flunked the none-too-demanding writing test for prospective employees" and did not get the job, but a source at Burson-Marsteller later told us that in fact she passed the test but was not hired for other reasons. We wondered why someone, somewhere in the Burson-Marsteller food chain misrepresented the situation to Newsweek, accidentally or on purpose.

  • Tripp, Linda
  • According to the February 9, 1998 issue of Newsweek, a tobacco lobbyist named William Hecht helped place Linda Tripp in a White House job during the Bush Administration. After the 1992 election, Tripp stayed on at the White House as a "confidential assistant" to White House advisor Bernie Nussbaum, a senior member of tobacco law firm Wachtel Lipton Rosen & Katz, which happens to be one of the leading law firms representing the tobacco industry. Later, Tripp turned over her accumulated Lewinsky tapes to Wachtel Lipton partner George Conway, who gave them to James Moody (no apparent tobacco connection), who gave them to Starr. . . Conway was the author of the brief that persuaded the U.S. Supreme Court to permit the Paula Jones case to proceed. (Newsweek reported that Conway never told his partners that he was active on this case.) . . Tripp sources told Newsday that Tripp taped conversations with Lewinsky partly out of a desire to seek revenge against the administration over its handling of the July 20, 1993, death of Foster, her former boss. Tripp was the last White House staffer to see Foster alive.

  • PM scientist. May 24, 1972: wrote memo on Philip Morris U.S.A. interoffice stationery, stating that rival brand Kool had the highest nicotine "delivery" of any king-size on the market. "This ties in with the information we have from focus group sessions and other sources that suggest that Kool is considered to be good for 'after marijuana' to maintain the 'high' or for mixing with marijuana, or 'instead." He wrote that Kool's high nicotine is a reason for its success, and that "we should pursue this thought in developing a menthol entry. . . The lessened taste resulting from the lowered tar can be masked by high menthol or other flavors. Many menthol smokers say they are not looking for high tobacco taste anyway. . . A widely held theory holds that most people smoke for the narcotic effect (relaxing, sedative) that comes from the nicotine. The 'taste comes from the 'tar' (particulate matter) delivery. . . . Although more people talk about 'taste,' it is likely that greater numbers smoke for the narcotic value that comes from the nicotine."

    • 1969 memo: I would be more cautious in using the pharmic-medical model--do we really want to tout cigarette smoke as a drug? It is, of course, but there are dangerous F.D.A. implications to having such conceptualization go beyond these walls. . . Perhaps this is the key phrase: the reinforcing mechanism of cigarette smoking. If we understand it, we are potentially more able to upgrade our product.

Beverly Hills Restaurant Association
California Business and Restaurant Alliance
Vermont Business and Restaurant Coalition The Vermont Business and Restaurant Coalition is another tobacco industry front group similar to the ones in California [51,53]. The submission is a collection of odds and ends, including yet another Price Waterhouse study predicting disaster if New York City enacted the then-proposed smoke free restaurant ordinance. (This report was done for the United Restaurant, Hotel, and Tavern Association of New York State, another Philip Morris front group
National Smokers Alliance is a front group established by Philip Morris [62], similar to other front groups such as the Beverly Hills Restaurant Association [51,63], California Business and Restaurant Alliance, and others. They have submitted a series of "reports" and press releases claiming that smoking restrictions have hurt restaurant business. Their "survey," conducted by the Heritage Foundation, was limited to smokers and ignored the fact that three-quarters of the population are nonsmokers. Rather than relying on data concerning what actually happened in cities that required smoke free restaurants, the National Smokers Alliance simply present theoretical models and speculation.

It has had support, for mailings, from the Tobacco Institute and uses the same public relations company, Ogilvy & Mather.
