David Bass, founder of D.C. firm Raptor Strategies faces up to 20 years in jail for disrupting a flight in progress, and intimidating a crew member and attendant. Under the Patriot Act, Bass’s drunken behavior is a felony.
The Washington Examiner reports that Bass became belligerent and aggressive during the flight from Houston to Washington, crawling over another passenger to stand in the aisle despite an attendant’s order not to. He was still drunk and aggressive when authorities questioned him at Regan airport, according to the FBI’s affidavit.
Bass launched Raptor less than three months ago, after holding big titles at Luntz, Maslansky Strategic Research, and Qorvis Communications before that. Prior to working at agencies, Bass held jobs at The Weekly Standard, National Journal, Campaigns & Elections, The Hill and the Washington Times.
