LaCivita is often mentioned for his role as media advisor to the Swift Boat Veterans. A US Marine Corps veteran, LaCivita was awarded a Purple Heart for wounds received while serving in the Persian Gulf War in 1991. Political career During the 2002 midterm elections, LaCivita was the political director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. LaCivita was the direct supervisor of James Tobin, another former employee of the DCI Group. In 2005, Tobin was sentenced to 10 months in federal prison for his role in the 2002 NH phone jamming scandal for his activities during that campaign; LaCivita was on Tobin's witness list but never called. Democrats, who sought testimony from LaCivita for a civil suit tied to the same incident, recently settled that civil suit out of court. Tobin's conviction was overturned on appeal.
