New Toy For A New Season

Check out the Center for Responsive Politics's newly-launched "Revolving Door" feature, which promises to reveal to you in all its details the path between the Capitol dome and K Street. You can type in names or government agencies and see who sent the most people to K Street, who on the Hill took the most K-Streeters back, etc. While not all of these are scandalous -- Cynthia Littlefield, who worked for FEMA, also lobbied for the Jesuits! -- it's remarkable to see the way single employees shift back-and-forth-and-back-and-forth from the two worlds, instead of permanently passing from one to the other.
