Wake-Up Call: the sins of former senators

It's not quite the million-buck-a-year consulting job that Tom Daschle got working with former Tele-Communication Inc. honcho Leo Hindery's InterMedia Advisors, and it may not come with a private car. But former Senator Wayne Allard just took a job with The Livingston Group, a D.C. lobbying firm. Apparently the dog-eat-dog world of influence-peddling really needed an out-of-work vet.

As for Daschle, his failure to pay taxes on the private car provided by Hindery finally drove him out of consideration for Secretary of Health and Human Services -- but not before he lobbied the Obama administration to give a senior post to his buddy Hindery.
