Gibbs on Lobbyist Cash

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is apparently soliciting and accepting contributions from lobbyists, according to this report.

Obama is headlining a DCCC, DSCC fundraising dinner this evening, but lobbyists aren’t permitted to attend or to have donated money for the dinner, though they are permitted to attend an “issues conference” being held on Friday. Obama didn’t take lobbyist or political action committee donations during his campaign. When he won the Democratic primary, he banned the Democratic National Committee from taking lobbyist and PAC campaign money as well.
