Ex-Lockheed Lobbyist Now Senate Armed Services Staffer

July 27, 2012
A former Lockheed Martin executive and top lobbyist has joined the Senate Armed Services Committee as the Republican staff director, according to the Project On Government Oversight. 

Ben Freeman has the details on Ann Elise Sauer's new post atop the committee, which oversees military spending. She will report to Republican Sen. John McCain

From POGO:

Sauer received more than $1.66 million from Lockheed during a reporting period that encompasses this year and last year, according to a financial disclosure form she filed in April. The $1.66 million included salary, bonus, deferred compensation and a lump sum described in the filing as "RETIRED PAY."

Sauer was appointed to the Senate staff position in February. Her financial disclosure form, recently noted by Legistorm, called attention to her appointment.

Lockheed Martin, the Department of Defense's top contractor (in terms of total contract dollars awarded yearly), receives tens of billions of dollars annually from the Pentagon. Last year alone, the firm was awarded Department of Defense contracts valued at more than $33 billion. The company is responsible for some of the Pentagon's most expensive and troubled weapon systems, including the F-22 and F-35 fighter jets.
