Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio) has brought a former lobbyist and aide to Sen. Conrad Burns (R-Mont.) back through the revolving door this month onto her legislative team.

Stan Ullman spent about three years with Burns before leaving to lobby on behalf of a variety of interests including the Montana Wyoming Tribal Leaders Council. Ullman's role with the Tribal Leaders Council raised eyebrows when Burns gave the Council more than $100,000 in charitable funds from his 2006 re-election campaign. The charitable contribution was intended to disgorge funds provided to Burns by lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Burns said at the time that his own staffer's representation of the Council was purely coincidental.

Ullman joins the lame duck congresswoman's staff as a legislative assistant. Schmidt lost her primary battle in March.
