Here’s a news item from the Associated Press:  BOISE, Idaho (AP) — After a quarter-century in public office, Idaho’s Dirk Kempthorne has officially rejoined the private sector as the top lobbyist for the nation’s life insurers. The former Idaho governor, U.S. senator and Interior Secretary became president and CEO of the American Council of Life Insurers on Wednesday. The group announced the hiring in September. Kempthorne succeeds former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating as chief executive officer for the group. Early in his career, Kempthorne was a lobbyist in Idaho for chemical maker FMC Corp. Now, Kempthorne and his staff will advocate for more than 300 legal reserve life insurer and fraternal benefit society member companies.
