When is a “resource” a “lobbyist”?

The Times (AP) profiles Tom Daschle here.

He works for a prominent lobbying firm, DLA Piper, though he himself is not a registered lobbyist and has said he is more comfortable being described as a ”resource” for former colleagues and others.

An aide at DLA Piper said Tuesday that Daschle was not available for an interview. Daschle joined the firm, which represents several health care-related clients, including vaccine maker Sanofi Pasteur, in mid-November. He previously worked at Alston & Bird, which represents numerous health care clients, including CVS Caremark Inc. and insurer Humana Inc.
