The shadow Congress

Posted By on Tue, Jun 1, 2010 at 9:41 AM

Talking Points Memo has an interesting post on the 170 former members of Congress who now lobby or otherwise seek to influence the place they once worked. There's also a map that shows former members from each state who work in the influence industry (not necessarily as registered lobbyists). Four are shown for Arkansas -- Bill Alexander, Dale Bumpers, Asa Hutchinson and Tim Hutchinson. Did Jay Dickey retire from lobbying? Doesn't TR claim international consulting expertise?

Yes, another one may be in the making.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
