Signing Bonus? Outgoing Rep. Altmire to Lobby For Company That Gave Him Most Campaign Cash

Blue Cross/Blue Shield placed a big bet on Rep. Jason Altmire (D-Pa.) with its corporate PAC and executives giving more money toward Altmire’s 2012 re-election effort than those of any other company.

Unfortunately for BCBS, while data from the Center for Responsive Politics show it gave $32,250 to Altmire’s campaign and leadership PAC, he was narrowly defeated by Rep. Mark Critz in an April Democratic primary.
