Revolving door

A former lobbyist who advocated on behalf of a variety of financial institutions, including MF Global months before its collapse, has joined Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.)'s office as a legislative aide.

Lara Driscoe spent close to a year as a government affairs representative with Delta Strategy Group handling a variety of clients including the now bankrupt investment firm headed by former Sen.
