Two Exits from the LA Times Washington Bureau

LA Observed just caught a couple of LA Times Washington bureau departures that we too seem to have missed in the past couple of weeks.

Late last month it was announced that Tom Hamburger would be joining the National desk at the Washington Post. Hamburger will cover the role of money in politics and “many other aspects of the campaign and power in Washington” according to a memo obtained by Huffington Post.

Meanwhile, Politico reported last week that Jim Oliphant had signed on to serve as deputy editor of the National Journal. Oliphant starts his new gig Monday.
