Super PAC-man lobbies to be president of Haiti

Caught Our Eye Posted by Sean Myers on Tuesday, February 09, 2016

A political mystery man with an unfathomable portfolio of super PACs is now lobbying Congress against MetLife's business practices — and to be installed as president of Haiti.

Floridian Josue Larose stormed onto the political scene in 2009 when he formed the American Federal Lobbying Firm and registered 60 previously unheard-of clients as super PACs across nearly every business and industrial sector.

Hill staffers becoming lobbyists at highest rate in years

Caught Our Eye Posted by Sean Myers on Monday, February 08, 2016

The number of former congressional staff members filing as new lobbyists during 2015 was the highest since 2011.

The most recent lobbying filings show that 471 congressional staffers made the trip through the revolving door over the course of 2015. Of them, 207 worked on the Democratic side of the aisle, and 256 for Republicans. The final eight worked for independents or worked in unaffiliated or bipartisan roles.

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.
