Let's not get ahead of ourselves — Karen Handel hasn't resigned (yet), but as pressure for her to quit grows, it seems like odd timing for the organization to post an ad that looks a lot like it's an ad to fill the embattled Senior Vice President of Public Policy's shoes. The ad is for a Director of Public Policy — are we just mincing labels here? Director, Senior Vice President — tomato, tomahto.

The ad seeks a candidate with a "health care policy background and existing relationships with Members of Congress and their staff." The position is DC-based, and requires "7+ years of experience on Capitol Hill and/or in government affairs or nonprofit advocacy."

Lingering baggage and public relations headache from previous Public Policy jobholder(s) is included as part of compensation package.
