Lobbyist irk me as well. It is nothing short of a legalized political bribe. The politicians themselves like to act like this isn't happening at all, and most likely won't pass legislation to solve this.

Gifts and free meals are bribes. nothing but a ban on all gifts will work, anything else is weasled around by the legislator.

Legislators become high paid lobbyist, with their own special entrance and back room attached.

Stan, for once I agree with you 100%. There is no bigger fraud on citizens than corruption in politics, legal or otherwise.

Lobbyists are paid by special moneyed interests to shape public policy. Legislators are paid by us to enact the policy lobbyists have purchased.
