The Senate chairmen, and the money behind them 

Do you know about the Wall Street lobbyist coming back to Congress to work for new Senate Banking Committee Chairman Tim Johnson? Or about Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus's revolving door lobbyists?

If these issues -- or the K Street and financial ties of any Senate committee chairmen and chairwomen -- interest you, check out the Center for Public Integrity's new report on all the chairmen.

(CPI had put out a report on the presumptive House chairmen back before the election, and I complained that the group and others in the media and "good-government" world didn't seem to have to same curiosity when it came to Democrats. With regard to CPI, I may have spoken too soon.)
