Michael Taylor ex VP of Monsanto (owned by Pfizer), appointed by Obama to run FDA.

Is this the biggest of such occurrences, since Hank Goldman Sachs Paulson?

A new study picked up by Politico and National Journal this week contained findings that would make any DC journalist drool: About 57 percent of lobbyists who move through the revolving door from Capitol Hill into the private sector fail to adequately report their former government employment as mandated by the Lobbying Disclosure Act.

why would lobbyist avoid this ?

I would think previous office experience would show immediately with contacts

Exactly. I used to read the K Street section up at the Hill. I couldn't figure out why it wasn't up to date. I knew the law had changed, however, to read it one would think that it was non-existent.

A lot of doors revolve around industry and regulators too.
