Next Congressman up for bids: Rep. Billy Tauzin

In a sure ploy to increase his price, Congressman Tauzin has rejected the initial offer to head the MPAA"Rep. Billy Tauzin (R., La.), who wields influence over the government's relationship with drug and media companies, rejected an offer to become Hollywood's top lobbyist but hasn't decided whether to head the pharmaceutical industry's leading trade organization"

this is just a big bidding war, Jack Valenti, who is reportedly 82, but closer to 108, has headed the organization since Edison was alive. He literally promoted the use of color picture technology as opposed to black and white.

Tauzin will likely end up being the head of the MPAA, but they will have to increase their offer.
