SOPA Congressional Staffers Get New Jobs in Entertainment

It’s reassuring to know things in Washington never change and it’s business as usual up on the Hill. Two of the senior aides who helped craft the SOPA legislation have now switched jobs to the private sector with the same companies that will profit from the passage of the legislation. Well, it can’t be called double-dipping I suppose, more like pre-dipping. Gotta love politics. big grin Thanks to TheWeazmeister for the linkage.

The former aides will face one-year lobbying bans, which means they cannot lobby the respective committees where they previously worked.
