Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)'s new staff director on the Armed Services Committee recently disclosed a $1.6 million buyout package from her time working as an executive in the defense contracting industry.

Ann Sauer left Lockheed Martin as a vice president in January 2011 and did consulting after that. But her disclosure, which is supposed to cover the beginning of 2012 and the entire 2011 year, revealed the $1.6 million from a combination of salary, bonus, deferred compensation and retirement pay from the contractor. 

Sauer's career in defense began in the late 1970s when she started as a professional staff member with the Armed Services Committee. McCain joined the committee upon his election to the Senate in 1987. Sauer's close relationship with McCain extends to when she served as a legislative assistant, then legislative director, for him during the 1990s.
