DC is already rife with lobbyists, most of whom represent corporate interests. The common practice of moving to very lucrative jobs after serving in congress or other influential posts should not be allowed, it's a form of corruption. A 5 year span between leaving office would allow a change of Administration and potential loss of influence for the lobbyist. I think this would better serve the public. Our government officials, whether elected or appointed, should serve then go home and re-integrate into normal society before cashing in on any influence or prestige they once held.
