From the US House Ethics Committee to Broward County?

Talking Points Memo notes that one of the "suspended attorneys in the middle of a brewing showdown between Republicans and Democrats on the House Ethics Committee is looking to jump ship and get out of the messy ethics battle altogether.

"Morgan Kim, who served as deputy chief of staff of the panel in the last Congress and lead attorney on the case against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), has applied for the job of Broward County inspector general, according to a list of applicants compiled by the Sun-Sentinel.

"According to the Florida paper, Kim is among the 24 applicants considered 'well-qualified' for the watchdog role, which will police the activities of all elected officials in Broward County."
