Former White House official Sara Taylor will lobby on behalf of the Iowa-based Renewable Energy Group, Inc., according to a lobbying registration filed with the Senate Tuesday.
Taylor, the former senior aide who worked for the president from the beginning of his administration, resigned in May. At the time, she said her professional plans were unclear and she was still considering her options in the private sector. In July, she was called to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the White House's role in the firing of several U.S. attorneys.
The lobbying registration says the Renewable Energy Group constructs and operates biodiesel facilities, and the registration's effective date is Aug. 27. The attorney, General Counsel John Gerken, couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday morning.
