K Street Files: The Heat Is On

“I thought what I was going to do when I retired was retire,” Saxton said. “I’ve got these half a dozen folks who contacted me or I got in contact with that presented an opportunity that was hard to say no to, particularly given my experience in the armed services area.”

Saxton said he has been careful to abide by the revolving-door House ethics rules, which bar him from lobbying former colleagues for one year. Instead of hitting up Members of Congress, Saxton is talking to Department of Defense officials on behalf of STARA.

Saxton also sits on company boards, including AM General, a company that produces Humvees.

The former Congressman doesn’t expect to expand his lobbying presence for now, but that could change.

“I’m really busy doing what I’m doing right now,” Saxton said. “I don’t know that I’ll make a practice out of lobbying Congress, but a year from now may be different.”

K Street Moves. The Rhoads Group has brought on L. Carter Cornick as senior vice president. Cornick, a 23-year veteran of Capitol Hill and the executive branch, most recently served as chief of staff to then-Sen. John Warner (R-Va.).
