Wanted: Lobbyists who will work for $25 an hour

“WANTED: Make Calls for Non-Profit Health Care Client $25/hr (Not Sales),” reads the ad posted last week to craigslist.org and community e-mail lists in Alexandria, Va.

...Lawyers who specialize in lobbying laws, however, said that these phone calls would, in fact, qualify as lobbying activities, even though neither LaMountain nor the people he hired might have to register as lobbyists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Public relations firms hire people to make phone calls to congress pushing a given agenda, just in case you wondered how iut is that nobody you know wants the bailout, yet the media claims Congress is being flooded with phone calls in favor of it.
