Bundlers for Barack Obama Who Have Registered as Federal Lobbyists

The Obama camp is raking in the dough after Super Tuesday, but I wondering, did you hear Barack Obama in his speech last night when he claimed that his campaign “has not taken a dime of” lobbyist money?

Not True, says Public Citizen who released a report detailing that ten bundlers forĀ Barack Obama have registered as federal lobbyists:

Lobbyist

State

Employer

Frank Clark

IL

Commonwealth Edison

Scott Harris

DC

Harris Wiltshire and Grannis

Allan J. Katz

FL

Akerman Senterfitt

Robert S. Litt

MD

Arnold & Porter

Thomas J. Perrelli

VA

Jenner and Block

Thomas A. Reed

VA

Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Preston Gates Ellis LLP

Paul N. Roth

NY

Schulte Roth & Zabel

Miriam Sapiro

DC

Summit Strategies

Alan Solomont*

MA

Solomont Bailis Ventures

Tom E. Wheeler*

DC

Core Capital Partners

Fact Hub also points out that Obama has “also taken money from former lobbyists, partners of lobbyists, people who hire lobbyists, lobbyists’ spouses, and state lobbyists.” And, untilĀ “he started running for president, Sen. Obama took money from federal lobbyists and, as a state senator, directly from corporations.”

Hmmm…. More hypocrisy from Obama.

    I followed your link, and found this sentence right there: ” Barack Obama and John Edwards each have
    bundlers who previously registered as lobbyists and are counted in this study.”

    So your entire post here is a twisting of the truth. Care to correct it to reflect
    the fact that this list of ten refers, not to lobbyists, but persons who were once
    lobbyists? Would you swear an oath that your presentation is ‘the truth, the
    whole truth, and nothing but the truth? Didn’t think so….
