Hi Jbloggs, thanks for your comment. The revolving door is definitely on our radar. We continue to pressure DoD to release information in its own revolving door database:

Ensuring strict revolving door requirements has also been a focus of ours in other areas:

Why doesn't pogo look into the revolving door that was supposed to be closed? Ellen Embrey finally caught the boot after her dismal tenure at DoD which included ensuring TBI, PTS and mental illness (i.e. suicide) went untreated and undected. Her track record was abysmal by any standard (she worked hard and was team player but failed to generate reuslts), yet joins the Cohen group as a lobbyist, sorry counselor, three months after her midnight exit. I am sure she is busy plying Skyline with incompentent contractors for projects that we do not need, cannot afford and just like during her tenure, do not work.
