Gov. Mike Beebe is showing no pressing desire to restaff the Washington, D.C. office headed under Mike Huckabee by a top political aide, Jason Brady. Legislators have long questioned the cost-benefit ratio of the operation and whether the office actually closed anymajor deals not already landed by Arkansas congressmen and senators.
Hmmm. You could outsource, you know. Hire a Washington lobbyist to represent Arkansas interests. Beebe might even know a former Arkansan or two working in that field in D.C. now.
