Emerson to resign Tuesday to head lobbying organization
Rep. Emerson's move is distasteful, not only in that she is moving directly from a job representing the people to a job where she will take advantage of her time as a legislator to help special interests influence legislation.
Of course, she is not allowed to personally lobby members of Congress for one year, but she will certainly be able to direct those who are, using the knowledge she received at the taxpayers' expense.
Plus, she is resigning just a little more than two months after being elected to a two-year term.
