Revolving Door between Congress and K Street

A great chart came out late last year showing retired members of Congress and their new jobs on K Street (lobbying and government affairs).  The accompanying article, "Former members of Congress always welcome on K Street," reports that one lobbying firm, Advantage Associates International, "...markets itself as a collaboration of seven former House members. Led by Texas Democrat Bill Sarpalius, Advantage is currently being paid $25,000 a month to represent former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf."

Thanks for the link. I wrote the above story and also blog for a site called First Street.

Last month they published an enlightening list of the top earning lobbyists, including former members of Congress.
