According to (subscription only) Roll Call:
Former Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) is expected to join the law and lobbying firm Dickstein Shapiro next month. An announcement is expected on Monday.
Huh-huh. Dickstein. Huh-huh.
The Hastert pickup would be the second lawmaker in as many months for Dickstein.- Advertisement -
Former Maryland Democrat Albert Wynn will join the firm on Monday as well. Wynn announced in March that he was stepping down, following his primary loss to nonprofit executive Donna Edwards.
So there you have it. If you're looking to have your lobbying done by people who no longer have the trust of the voters of their district (like Wynn, who lost his seat), or their own former colleagues (like Hastert, whose colleagues booted him from their leadership), head on over to Dickstein!
You know, though? For all the times these politicians tell everyone what regular guys they are, and how they're so connected to their districts and hometowns, how come none of them can ever find other kinds of jobs after they leave Congress?
And how come so few of them actually go home?
