After serving as assistant attorney general overseeing the criminal division under George W. Bush, Wray practiced law with the Washington firm King & Spalding. He also served as Christie’s lawyer when the former New Jersey governor faced backlash over closing a lane on the George Washington Bridge in an alleged revenge plot to get back at a Democrat mayor. Two of Christie’s former aides ended up going to jail in the scandal, though Christie was never charged. The Senate still needs to confirm Wray, so it remains unclear if the lawyer will get the job.

In that case it is usually a gas permeable on top of a soft lens. Gas permeable and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) lenses are well known to become enveloped in tissue (patient thinks it fell out) only to appear as a lump in the eyelid a decade or two later. The lump is surgically opened and there is the contact lens. Often the lenses are still usable!”
