What on earth . . .

does a Congressman's daughter have setting up a lobbying firm? If your close relatives are making money off their access to you, basic decency suggests that you ought to pack it in. Doesn't anybody in Washington get that? This is what's really behind the love of earmarks and pork. Local businesses hire lobbyists, who funnel their money to politicians, who get campaign contributions to keep them in office, and the gravy just keeps on flowing. Farming the government seems pretty lucrative.
