ALLEGED GOVERNMENT CONTRACTOR ISSUE.  MJ.  “The FEC bought the company’s argument, which is that Chevron Corporation (the organization that donated to CLF) and Chevron U.S.A. (the organization with government contracts) are entirely different entities.”

OBAMA AND LOBBYIST REGULATION.  WP.  “There are those who say the president’s moves unfairly cast all lobbyists in a sinister light, and there are those who say they simply encouraged anyone who might be interested in an administration job to remove themselves from the official registration rolls.”
