Paul Singer Leaves National Journal For Roll Call

From National Journal’s Charlie Green:

    All the best to Paul Singer, who’s accepted a position as a senior investigative reporter at Roll Call, where he will be reuniting with Roll Call Editor Charlie Mitchell. As Paul puts it, “Charlie and I first began working together in 1990, and several of my other friends and former colleagues work at Roll Call. Someone reminded me of the old line from the Blues Brothers movie–‘We’re getting the band back together, man!” Paul has been a valued member of the NJ staff since starting here nearly three years ago. He’s covered lobbying and the executive branch for NJ, as well as help supervise our interns. We’ll miss not only Paul’s articles for NJ (such as his piece that traced how the Katrina money was spent and his cover story on the Bush White House’s efforts to transform the executive branch) but also his infectious enthusiasm and endless energy. Paul’s last day at NJ will be February 16.

From Roll Call’s Charlie Mitchell:

    I am pleased to announce the hiring of Paul Singer to join our investigative reporting team. Paul most recently has been covering Katrina-related misdeeds among other enterprise projects as a staff writer for National Journal. Prior to that he was A.P.’s Cleveland bureau chief and has years of experience rooting for skeletons in various congressional and administration cellars. He will be working closely with Rachel Van Dongen and pursuing a variety of enterprise projects. Paul’s first day will be Feb. 20.
