CHARLOTTE — Former U.S. Rep. Sue Myrick of North Carolina is returning to Capitol Hill as a lobbyist for a Christian broadcaster based in South Carolina.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports the Charlotte Republican registered last month to lobby for the Inspiration Network, based in Indian Land, S.C.

Myrick calls it a temporary job to help the network with an issue before Congress that involves satellite technology and broadcasting.

The cable TV network is one of the world’s largest Christian broadcasters with programming in more than 120 countries.

The network is run by David Cerullo. It began almost a quarter-century ago from the remains of Jim Bakker’s PTL Club when Cerullo’s father bought PTL’s cable television assets out of bankruptcy.
