The implosion of lobbying firm PMA Group continues to make news.
Today, The Washington Post reported that leaked documents from congressional ethics investigators show that seven members of a House subcommittee that controls defense spending are under investigation because of their ties to now-defunct PMA.
Of course, just because the lobbying firm is no more doesn't mean that PMA's former lobbyists or their clients have gone away. Back in March, Legal Times reported that several former PMA Group lobbyists had started new firms.
One such new firm, Flagship Government Relations, begun by former PMA Vice Chairwoman Kaylene Green, reported receiving $585,000 in lobbying fees during the third quarter, lobbying disclosure reports show. Another new firm mentioned in that story, Federal Business Group, Inc., registered its first client at the end of March, and since then, has filed a total of 18 new client registrations, lobbying disclosure reports show.
