Lobbyist for Health Job

The Hill is following issues related to a Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids lobbyist appointed to an Obama administration post. 

Obama plans to nominate William Corr, who had been executive director of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and a registered lobbyist since 2000, to be deputy secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).

But nominating Corr would require the White House to waive Obama’s Jan. 21 executive order against lobbyists serving in his administration. The order says a person may not “seek or accept employment with any executive agency that I lobbied within the two years before the date of my appointment.”
