Former governor George Pataki is set to launch a consulting firm, in the model of Giuliani Partners. It'll be called the Pataki-Cahill group and will be based out of the Manhattan offices of the law firm Chadbourne and Parke, where Pataki and his longtime aide John Cahill have been working. Except Pataki's brand of advice will be environmental rather than security-based. In other words, he's trying to follow in the footsteps of both Al Gore and Rudy Giuliani. You know, several years later. Ever the bridge builder, that Pataki.
