Crawford, Werbach, Kohlenberger join Obama Team

My friends Susan Crawford, Kevin Werbach and Jim Kohlenberger have joined the Obama team [announcement here].

Susan and Kevin are listed as, "FCC Review Team Lead." I don't know exactly what that means, but it can only be good news for those of us who care about keeping the Internet open and vital.

Jim Kohlenberger shares National Science Foundation review duties with Henry Rivera. Again, good news; federal scientific efforts badly need renewed focus, and I am sure Jim will give it his all!

I had thought that lobbyists who were hired by the Obama transition team were prohibited from working on the issues on which they'd lobbied. Yet, you say that Susan Crawford, who has lobbied Congress extensively on behalf of the inside-the-Beltway lobbying group Public Knowledge (and is listed on their Web page as being part of their group), is working on the FCC transition team?
