Lobbyists fight back!

A recent PR Week article [registration required] reports that "Washington lobbyists, having endured nearly as much verbal abuse this year from the Democratic candidates as President Bush, are fighting back against what they call unfair characterizations." The American League of Lobbyists (ALL) asked Democratic Presidential hopefuls to stop demonizing "government relations professionals."

"Lobbying is an essential part of the American political process protected by the First Amendment to the US Constitution," the letter reads. "[It's] one of the major ways that politicians are held accountable to the people. Lobbyists represent all points of view on the major issues that confront the country and the Congress - environment, labor, the elderly, teachers, veterans, as well as businesses, to name just a few." //Billy McCormac
