The first two clients to hire ex-Rep. Vicki Truitt within days of her leaving office last month are interests that she serviced as chair of the House Pensions, Investments & Financial Services Committee. Last session Rep. Truitt championed bills for the predatory lending industry and the Teachers Retirement System. After voters kicked her out of office, Truitt now serves the same interests as a revolving-door lobbyist for ACE Cash Express and the Texas Retired Teachers Association.

The new Lobby Watch celebrates Vicki Truitt's payday.
