The former constituents who returned Eric Cantor to the private sector have reason to think, He is who we thought he was. As Mario Trujillo of The Hill reports:

Former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) has joined the global investment bank Moelis & Company as vice chairman and managing director, the company announced Tuesday. Cantor, who resigned from Congress during the August recess after losing his primary in June, will also be elected to the company's board of directors. 

When any member of the political class falls, it tends to be upward.  And let none say that Mr. Cantor has gone over entirely to Wall Street.

As the Washington Post reports, Mr. Cantor will be opening a Moelis office in Washington.  Where he has a lot of experiencing in banking.
