More than 220 Capitol Hill staffers have taken jobs as lobbyists in 2014

Via The Hill:

Legistorm, an organization that compiles and analyzes congressional data, reported that the number of departures to K Street in 2014 is on pace to exceed the last election year of 2012, when about 329 staffers left to go lobby.

"Headhunters said a number of factors explain the jump, including a ‘brain drain’ of ambitious aides who are frustrated by the legislative gridlock."

In our democracy, we should hear from every voice, not just those of elites and lobbyists.
