The broke Jim Moran has taken a job as a lobbyist with the D.C. law firm McDermott Will & Emery. He will start as a legislative advisor because ethics rules bar him from registering as a lobbyist for the first year that he is out of Congress. After a year has passed, he’ll register as a lobbyist. He plans to lobby on behalf of defense contractors, who gave him tons of money while he was in Congress.
No word on how much he’ll be paid, but it will surely be a hefty sum. We’ll see if he blows it all on stock gambling.
