Rats deserting a sinking ship

Guess Pawlenty is trying to sidestep the taint of defeat?

(CNN) – Tim Pawlenty, the former Minnesota governor and 2012 Republican presidential candidate, was named Thursday as president and CEO of the Financial Services Roundtable, a Washington-based lobbying group.

Pawlenty will step down as a national co-chairman of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign to assume the new role, which will formally begin November 1.

One thought on “Rats deserting a sinking ship

  1. CEO of the Financial Services Roundtable…a lobbying group. It’s more likely that he’s going to use the skills he learned and the connections he made as a politican to fill his pockets with the taxpayers gold. There should be a law prohibiting any ex-elected office holder (federal or state) from serving as a lobbyist for LIFE. And another law prohibiting an ex-House member or ex-Senator from stepping foot in Washington, DC for 10 years after leaving office.
