Lobbying the Elected Georgia Represenatives


In the past two weeks, lobbyists have spent more than $340 per member of the (Georgia) Legislature literally wining and dining lawmakers. Ethics reformers don't like it. – ajc.com, Feb 17, 2011.

I bet Governor Nathan Deal is fuming. Just thinking lof those lobbyists trying to influence the Georgia legislators with wine, food, and other presents, after all he the Governor insisted in his campaign he is very ethical.

Those highly paid lobbyists bearing gifts can have quality time with legislators just about anytime they want to. You try communicating with your representative and see what a nice form letter you get back.

The governor needs to have a heart to heart talk with the lobbyists. I would think he knows them well, after all, he enlisted them to help him with his transition into the governor’s office, so the news said at the time.
