Lobbyists Under Scrutiny

It may have seemed that lobbyists were “kicked around” on the campaign trail this year, according to this National Journal blog entry.

Yet, [Patrick] Griffin called some of the candidates’ solutions on the campaign trail “distortions and caricatures.” He said there are useful ways to tackle revolving-door problems, but not by “embracing all of this debate that’s going on from either camp about the evilness of [lobbying].”

This entry appeared on National Journal’s new Under the Influence Blog, covering the “business of a powerful $3 billion-plus industry.”
