A longtime aide to Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) has traded in his Hill experience for a job at Raytheon.
Dan Sadlosky joined the defense contractor this month as a government-relations director. Raytheon is Washington's tenth-largest lobbying presence, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, and spent more than $8.2 million on federal lobbying in the first half of the year.
Several members and their spouses accepted cushy travel to South Korea last month at the tune of nearly $19,000 per member.
The U.S. Association of Former Members of Congress spent just shy of $151,000 on six days of travel for just eight members - Reps. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.), Brendan Boyle (D-Pa.), Darren Soto (D-Fla.), Ami Bera (D-Calif.), Peter Meijer (R-Mich.), Tony Gonzales (R-Texas), Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-Wash.) and Young Kim (R-Calif.).
