The Hill reports that lobbyists were invited to a fundraiser.
Dozens of lobbyists were invited to a Democratic National Committee (DNC) fundraiser Tuesday night with a Cabinet member even though President Barack Obama has sworn off taking money from lobbyists.
A DNC official said it was a mistake that lobbyists were invited to a small gathering with Lisa Jackson, Obama’s administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The official said a review of attendees indicates that no lobbyists attended the event.

The DNC and the White House have repeatedly insisted that the committee will not and does not accept money from federal lobbyists or political action committees.
