She was one of the first hires (as a part-time consultant) for ICG, a firm that assists businesses in obtaining and defending performance under government contracts. At the time of her hire, Congressman Davis was her mentor and campaign manager. ICG Founder and President Don Upson is a longtime friend of Davis. After Devolites was hired by ICG, Davis, then divorced, married Devolites.
The financial benefits between Rep. Davis and his wife, from the ICG job as well as other campaign donations to Mrs. Davis, were highlighted in a June 2007 ethics report "Family Affair" by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.. The report identified ethical questions on financial ties that benefit family members of 64 of the 435 voting members of Congress.
On 2006-07-28 the Washington Post reported that the Defense Information Systems Agency had reviewed its satellite contract with Artel, Inc., and the agency had preliminarily determined that the contract was ineffective and expensive. Artel then hired ICG for lobbying services. ICG drafted a letter Congressman Davis signed to the agency threatening an investigation by his Committee if the contract was not awarded. After the Post articles appeared, Congressman Davis sought an opinion from the House Ethics Committee. They advised him to be careful to avoid the appearance of any conflict in this matter. The Post published an extensive article on the issue, the company had to register as a lobbyist, and ICG removed a picture from the front page of its website of Tom Davis speaking to ICG clients.[/sup][/sup] Jeannemarie continues to work for ICG and was paid $78,000 in 2005 for working "10 to 20 hours a week," primarily at home on her cellphone, she said.
