Help Wanted:

Wal-Mart lobbyist quits as chain seeks Hill clout
Wal-Mart’s chief lobbyist resigned this week as the company continues to expand its Washington office in the face of growing criticism from labor unions, small-business groups and minorities.

Funny thing is that of the folks I know on the Hill who have spoken with Wal-Mart about this job, none have any interest in taking it. (Of course you should have no doubt that some lobbyist whore will take this job...'cause we're all whores here) From what I've heard, the job pays pretty low for the largest company in the US and the challenges facing it are too big for such measley pay. In fact, a few weeks ago I got this email (below) from Wal-Mart. I must admit I considered it for about 5 seconds before realizing I'm a Target person.
