Lee welcomes former sex ed lobbyist as new staffer

Caught Our Eye Posted by Steve Shapiro on Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) has brought on a seasoned reproductive health lobbyist and analyst as a new legislative assistant.

M.A. Keifer - who goes by her last name - joined Lee this month from the organization Advocates for Youth, where she was a registered lobbyist from 2013 until her departure. Keifer held the position of international policy analyst at the organization which has the self-stated mission to "advocate for policies and champion programs that recognize young people's rights to honest sexual health information." During her time, she lobbied on issues such as contraception access, teen pregnancy prevention, HIV/AIDS and comprehensive sexuality education among others.

Members flock to Sudan and South Sudan on privately sponsored trips

Caught Our Eye Posted by Steve Shapiro on Monday, November 23, 2015

Lawmakers and their staff took two separate group trips to not-so-glamorous Sudan and South Sudan at the beginning of the month, according to disclosures filed in the past week.

The first group, with filings from Reps. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) and Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) and two staff departed Nov. 5 for Khartoum and returned Nov. 10. The trip was sponsored by the Humpty Dumpty Institute, an organization with a self-described mission of tackling global problems to "put the pieces back together again." The Institute received funding from the CTC Group, a Sudanese company focused on agrochemicals, engineering and electronics, and from the American Global Institute, a D.C.-based nonprofit focused on trade. The president of AGI, A.I. Khalafalla, was named chair of the Humpty Dumpty Institute in September.

We have found LegiStorm to be the ultimate tool in communicating with congressional offices, either individually or with a group. We have been able to reach out with messages to all chiefs of staff and legislative directors, or staff dedicated to specific areas. We believe that this ability was instrumental in passing two key pieces of legislation which were imperative to our members.

The data provided by LegiStorm stands out as the best Congressional data available. The accuracy and organization of LegiStorm's data has meant that I've been able to greatly speed up progress on my research. I have no hesitation in recommending LegiStorm to all types of researchers, journalists, lobbyists and other political professionals.
