Obama Hires Lobbyists of Various Stripes

As PRWatch has noted, lobbyists of various backgrounds are finding jobs in the new Barack Obama Administration. Some recently hired include Eric Holder, one of whose clients was Global Crossing, Tom Vilsack who represented the National Education Association, William Lynn who was a top exec for military contractor Raytheon, William Corr who lobbied for The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Mark Patterson, recently a lobbyist for Goldman Sachs, Ron Klain who represented the Coalition for Asbestos Resolution, Melody Barnes, a lobbyist for the American Civil Liberties Union and the American Constitution Society, Cecilia Munoz who lobbied for the National Council of La Raza and Patrick Gaspard, a lobbyist for the Service Employees International Union.



Don't forget about Sanjay Gupta who might not be an official lobbyist, but has his head so far up pharma's ****. A definite special interest puppet.
