Yeah that isn't very good money - especially for D.C.
Keep in mind, though, that benefits for federal employees are excellent. Plus, you might not have all of the pressures of a firm job (with billable hours and such) - this is NOT to say that such a job would be easy, it's just not going to be the same as a firm job.
I think the federal government also helps you out a lot with your school loans, so I wouldn't immediately trash this potential job just because the bottom dollar isn't as enticing as firm employment would be. Maybe gather some more information from your connection and go from there.
How does the gov't help you with your loans? Link please! I have never ever heard of this.
If your school has an LRAP, it might cover government work, but I have never heard of a government program that will.
