Applicability of 18 U.S.C. § 207(a) to the Union Station Development Corporation


18 U.S.C. § 207(a) does not prohibit a former employee of the District of Columbia government now working for the Union Station Redevelopment Corporation from communicating with the District government concerning matters on which she worked as a District employee, because the Corporation should be regarded as “the United States” for the purposes of that statute.
