What Does Elizabeth Taylor Know?

Oddly enough, possibly something.

Elizabeth Taylor used to be married to former U.S. Senator John Warner, Republican of Virginia. John Warner, Esq. used to be managing partner of the Washington, D.C. law firm of Hogan & Hartson, where I worked from mid-September 1985 to late February 1988. Elizabeth Taylor used to be a client of Hogan & Hartson. The Hogan paralegal Sara Shea told me in 1986 that she once saw Elizabeth Taylor visit the Washington office.

Elizabeth Taylor also used to be married to the late actor Richard Burton. Richard Burton portrayed the German opera composer Richard Wagner in the movie "Wagner"--an eight-hour extravaganza.

Former Senator John Warner rejoined Hogan & Hartson as a partner in March 2009.

Former Senator Rejoins Hogan & Hartson

Wed, Mar 11, 2009

Former Republican Virginia Senator John Warner has rejoined Hogan & Hartson’s Washington, DC office as a partner, 37 years after he left the firm.

Warner, who retired from the Senate after finishing his fifth term last year, will work in the firm’s international practice. Warner will focus on climate change, government contracts, and defense issues.

Warner will not be lobbying for Hogan & Hartson, and the firm says it will strictly adhere to ethics laws.

Warner left the firm as a partner in 1969, when he joined the Department of Defense as undersecretary of the Navy. After serving as secretary of the Navy, Warner pursued elected office. In 1978, he was elected to the Senate, where he spent 30 years on the Senate Armed Services Committee, eventually becoming chairman.

The 82-year-old Warner was once married to actress Elizabeth Taylor. He graduated from the University of Virginia Law School in 1953.
