Ars Technica – “No lobbying,” says senator before taking movie biz lobby job

Former Senator Chris Dodd has a new gig—head of the motion picture industry’s main lobbying group, the MPAA.

The group has been looking for a new leader for quite a while, and in Dodd they found another long-term, high-level government official (former head Dan Glickman had served in Congress and as Secretary of Agriculture). But hadn’t Dodd said something about not going to work as a lobbyist once his Senate career was through?
