Lobbyists Are People Too

I haven't really talked about campaign finance and lobbying in a while. Part of it is simply a waning interest in the whole matter. But I do tend to get my nose out of shape when people give lobbyists a great deal of stick for being involved in campaign finance. Frankly I don't give a toss when people complain about special interests being so nefarious as to be corrupting the process. But I do expect people who are involved in politics to understand that lobbyists can contribute money just like anyone else.

So when I see something like this, it makes me happy.
