Obama, Wellstone a “gadfly.”

March 6, 2008

Despite Rhetoric, Obama Pushed Lobbyists’ Interests

Justin Rood Reports:

Despiterhetori_mn_2 Away from the bright lights and high-minded rhetoric of the campaign trail, Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., has quietly worked with corporate lobbyists to help pass breaks worth $12 million.

In his speeches, Obama has lambasted lobbyists and moneyed interests who “have turned our government into a game only they can afford to play.”
