Washington senator registers to lobby for Cambodia

Olympia, Wash. (AP) — Republican Sen. Doug Ericksen has registered as a foreign agent in order to consult and lobby for the country of Cambodia.

Under documents filed with the U.S. Department of Justice under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, Ericksen signed an agreement between PacRim Bridges LLC — a company he formed in 2017 — and the Kingdom of Cambodia on March 25.

Under the contract, first reported by Politico, PacRim will receive $500,000 a year to provide consulting services and to “work to support legislation that is positive for Cambodia.” Among the services offered by PacRim will be arranging for cultural exchanges and visits by Cambodian delegations.
