Morning Business: Obamas Brain Drain
The lure of the Obama White House must be sweet indeed.
[IMGCAP(1)]Alejandro Perez, who just last year rose to become House Majority Leader Steny Hoyers (D-Md.) floor director, is leaving the plum post for a job on President- elect Barack Obamas legislative affairs team, House aides said.
Perez will be working under Dan Turton, the White House lobbying arms top House liaison, who in turn works for Phil Schiliro, Obamas legislative affairs assistant. It is not yet clear who will replace Perez in Hoyers operation.
