Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.)'s chief of staff may have gotten a raise by going from the lobbying world back to government.

Mike Platt, a former Blackburn aide, pocketed $132,000 in 2011 and $60,783 in compensation and deferred bonus in 2012 as director of government affairs with the Recording Industry Association of America. The maximum salary for staffers in the House is around $170,000 per annum.

Platt's first quarter salary from the House suggests he will come close to if not exceed his yearly earnings while lobbying. When he rejoined Blackburn's office in late February until the end of March, he earned $17,777.

Platt spent over four years with Blackburn as her legislative director from 2003-2007.
