Lobbyist Lucre

The Washington Times reports that “powerhouse lobbying couple” Heather and Tony Podesta held a fundraiser last night for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

Money follows political power, said Michael Toner, a former FEC chairman and a partner at Bryan Cave LLP, particularly corporate money.

“There’s no question K Street corporate PACs are being very generous with the Democratic officeholders now – they’re the committee chairs – particularly on the House side,” he said.

Other Democrats listed to attend the Podesta fundraiser are House Education and Labor Committee Chairman George Miller of California, Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry A. Waxman of California, and Appropriations energy and water development subcommittee Chairman Peter J. Visclosky, among others.
