    Congress Increasingly Staffed By Former Lobbyists (PDF Link)

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/59892682/H...to-Hired-Hands

    The Center found that 128 former lobbyists work in key staff positions in this Congress, compared to 60 in the last one. Researchers also determined that two House committees -- Financial Services and Energy and Commerce -- "have the highest cumulative number of former lobbyists employed by their members." Each have 14.
