WASHINGTON (JTA) -- Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.), a pro-Israel stalwart with close ties to the U.S. intelligence community, is quitting Congress.
Harman reportedly is leaving to run the Washington DC- based Woodrow Wilson Center, a preeminent foreign policy think tank.
She is replacing Lee Hamilton, also a prominent former Democratic congressman.
Harman, known for her ties with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, was embroiled in 2009 in the controversy over espionage-related charges against two former staffers.
