Speaking of newly minted lobbyists:
Former U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln can now officially lobby the Senate, having completed the two-year waiting period since she left the Senate.
Hard to tell the difference. She’s been working for a political lobbying firm almost ever since, though supposedly not making lobbying contacts at the Capitol. Hard to tell the difference, as a “special advisor” for big bucks at Alston and Bird her activities have included fighting the EPA for the troglodytes at the National Federation of Independent Business. Hard to believe she hasn’t been making her sentiments known in recent days about doing something about that turrible estate tax.
Alston and Bird touts Lincoln in a video on its website currently.
