Ex-Financial Regulators Get Set to Lobby Agencies:

According to the analysis done by the Center for Responsive Politics, nearly 500 officials have gone through the “revolving door” between government financial agencies and the private sector. Of that group, 148 former regulatory officials were registered to lobby the government last year or this year, representing virtually every regulatory agency.

And then after they’re lobbyists, they’ll probably come work for the government some more, which I see no problems with whatsoever!
