American League of Lobbyists writes President Obama on lobbyists on boards and commissions

penThe American League of Lobbyists’ David Wenhold wrote this letter to President Obama regarding the administration’s position on lobbyist membership on certain boards and commissions.

This move seems inconsistent with Constitutional principles that people should not be punished for engaging in activities that were not actionable prior to new rules being put into place, and does not seem to be in keeping with otherĀ  democratic principles on which you have based your administration. To some, in fact, this move could be seen as arbitrary, discriminatory, and/or generally unfair.
