The AP dropped quite the story today.
For months, Montana Republican congressman Denny Rehberg has been criticizing U.S. Sen. Jon Tester for being the leading recipient of campaign cash from lobbyists. But it turns out Rehberg has been taking donations from some lobbyists without disclosing their place of employment.… an Associated Press analysis of campaign finance disclosure reports through October turned up nearly three dozen lobbyists, who donated a total of about $20,000 to Rehberg’s campaign, with their employment left blank on disclosure forms.
These lobbyists include “a policy adviser to former vice president Dick Cheney who now lobbies for Shell Oil.” So, not only is Rehberg a hypocrite, but he’s a liar and a cheat. I wish I could say I was surprised, but that would be like Rehberg saying he hasn’t secretly raised $20,000 from lobbyists.
