OGE's message on RIC's passing is here:
RIC practiced law in Kentucky for many years, and was not a Washington insider when he came to OGE as an appointee of President Bush. That was one of the many reasons he was the right man for the job. It was an honor for me to work with RIC, his assistant Beverly Johnson and his colleagues at OGE when I was the White House ethics lawyer. RIC and his colleagues sought to make our government accountable to the people and not to special interests, and their work, under current director Walter Shaub, continues to be critically important today.
