Arkansas Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin is taking a job with a national communications and consulting firm in addition to his post as the state's No. 2 constitutional officer.

Purple Strategies announced Tuesday that the Republican ex-congressman would work for the firm as senior adviser for communications and growth strategies. Griffin was sworn in last week as lieutenant governor.

The company said Griffin will not work for its government affairs and lobbying subsidiary, Purple Advocacy, and he won't lobby at either the state or federal level.

Griffin served two terms representing central Arkansas' 2nd Congressional District before announcing last year he would not seek re-election.
