Lisa Lerer is leaving Politico to take a job with Bloomberg News. She has been with the publication for about three years and is on the congressional team in which she covered lobbying, policy and economic issues.
Lerer is the fifth scribe to leave Politico in recent weeks. The list includes: Patrick O’Conner (Bloomberg News), Victoria McGrane (Dow Jones Newswires), Pia Catton (WSJ) and Michael Calderone (Yahoo News).
(In case anyone thinks I’m joking, it’s April 2, so April Fools’ Day is over.)
