Seven term US Representative Robert Wexler, D-Boca Raton, has stated that he is resigning from Congress. He is reportedly taking a job with a nonprofit that promotes peace in the Middle East.
Initial reports were that Wexler, an early supporter of Barack Obama, might be in line for an appointment in the Obama administration. However, it appears that Wexler is taking a public policy job that deals with the Middle East.
This resignation is kind of ironic if you think about it. A US Rep that supports Obama who claims he is against lobbyists, leaves Congress to become a J-Street lobbyist. Or is the word I am looking for hypocrisy? The Astute Blogger has the scoop of Wexler’s new gig at the Center for Middle East Peace and Economic Cooperation.
