The supercommittee’s K Street connections

Nearly 100 former aides to members of the new budget-cutting  “supercommittee” now work as K Street lobbyists, often representing  clients with a vested interest in the panel’s decisions. A half dozen  former lobbyists are also currently employed by the lawmakers. The  connections mean that many lobbyists are now trying to convince their  former employers to go easy on their corporate clients.
