For eight years, Timothy Goeglein served as Special Assistant to President George W. Bush and Deputy Director of the White House Office of Public Liaison where he served as the middle man between the Oval Office and the Religious Right.

Goeglein served in this capacity until it was discovered that he had plagarized several columns he had been writing for an Indiana newspaper over the years and he subsequently resigned, eventually landing a new job as the main lobbyist for Focus on the Family.
