Former Franken chief of staff to lobby for green energy company

WASHINGTON – The revolving door spins again. After leaving DFL Sen. Al Franken’s office last month, his former chief of staff Drew Littman has taken a job with a renewable energy company.

According to Politico, which first reported the news, Littman will open a Washington office for California-based Solazyme, which makes biofuels from algae.

Littman joined Franken’s staff in July 2009 immediately after the drawn-out election recount. Before working for Franken, Littman was a lobbyist with his own practice and also worked with the powerhouse Washington firm Podesta Associates.
