Business As Usual

The lobbying rules are quite clear. You must be paid to be considered a lobbyist and lobbying must constitute over 20% of your work time. So, Bruce Carson, allegedly tried to set up a deal for his ex-hooker girlfriend, so she will get the benefit from his non-lobbying, lobbying. He keeps his activities to under the "20% of his time" level and so he is not in conflict with the lobbying rules. So, nothing to see here, I guess. What we have here is just another case of a member of the ruling class, gaming the system. No one could be upset by that, could they?
