Roll Call reports that General Motors fired its outside lobbyists today.
The Duberstein Group, which raked in the most fees from GM during the first three months of the year, confirmed late Tuesday that it had been notified by the company.
According to Senate disclosure statements, GM spent $2.8 million on lobbying during the first three months of 2009, including $100,000 in fees to Duberstein, $70,000 to the Washington Tax Group and $60,000 to the Nickles Group.
All three would not comment on the terminations.
“We never talk about clients,” Duberstein lobbyist Michael Berman said.
A spokesman for Greenberg Traurig, which was paid $20,000 by GM in the first quarter, said the firm had not been notified by GM as of late Tuesday afternoon.
