I have to agree with the author on this issue. Resigning from office to take another job is a disservice to the voters who elected the official in my opinion. Besides the two year limit on lobbing the legislature there should also be a limit on how soon the individual could run for elected office again, say ten years unless they pay the state for the cost of the special election to replace them.
