Dan Maffei cashes out; so does SEC lawyer who implemented Dodd-Frank 

Former congressman and longtime Hill staffer Dan Maffei, described on the NetRoots hub ActBlue as "a true blue, solid progressive" cashed out this summer to a lobbying firm. (One of my liberal friends says Maffei was always a bit too moderate for his taste.) Kevin Bogardus at The Hill reported:

Maffei has joined the government and regulatory policy division of Manatt, Phelps & Phillips as a senior adviser. The former lawmaker will work out of the firm's Washington, New York City and Albany, N.Y., offices.

And the latest player in the Regulate `Em then Work for `Em game is Jordan Thomas of the SEC. Ira Stoll at The Future of Capitalism has the story:

who spent the past eight years "as an Assistant Director and Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel in the SEC's Division of Enforcement," and who "notably... played a leadership role in the development and implementation of the SEC's Whistleblower Program, which was enacted by the Dodd-Frank Act in July 2010, with the related implementing rules becoming effective this August" is joining the securities class-action law firm Labaton Sucharow LLP to launch its "Whistleblower Representation Practice," the firm announced.
