Revolving door

A top legislative assistant to Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) left the congressman this month for a new post with a giant in the banking lobby.

Ed Elfmann joined the American Bankers Association as a senior federal legislative representative for the group's Center for Agricultural and Rural Banking. The center is "dedicated to providing advocacy, information, training, education, and public relations for banks that make and service agricultural loans or provide credit and other financial services to those living and working in rural America," according to its website.

Before going through the revolving door, Elfmann cut his teeth handling agriculture issues for King while the Sioux City rep served on the House Agriculture Committee.
