Well guess who of all people the GOP is assigning the task of spearheading legislation to curb Lobby Whoring? Why none other than that cash slut Rick ‘Man on Dog’ Santorum. From the Post Gazette:
Sen. Rick Santorum, who has been tapped by fellow Senate Republican leaders to draft legislation tightening restrictions on lobbyists, has received more money from lobbyists than any other congressional candidate so far in the 2006 election cycle.
Mr. Santorum, R-Pa., received $145,946 from lobbyists in the period from the start of the 2006 election cycle through Oct. 31, 2005, according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics based on the most recent data the Federal Election Commission has published.
So read it and weep, the GOP still stands for Grossly Outdated Politicos. It’s time for a complete GOP overhaul from top to bottom, they don’t even pretend to care except when a camera is in their face. The rest of the time they are laughing their ass off all the way to the K street cash machines.
