Hastert Goes Through Revolving Door
Former Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) has landed a new job, and -- prepare yourself for a shock -- it's at a lobbying firm. Hastert will be a senior advisor at Dickstein Shapiro, working for the company's Government Law & Strategy Group. In a stirring statement, Hastert said, "I am extremely pleased to be joining such a renowned firm.I look forward to providing strategic advice to the firm's clients."
Of course, Hastert could be serving out his final term in Congress right now. Instead, he chose to resign in November, leading to the GOP losing his seat in a March special election after the candidate Hastert backed, Jim Oberweis, ran a less-than-inspiring campaign.
