Progressives are calling
out Democratic lawmakers for giving up lobbyist and PAC money only one
night, during a June fundraiser with President Obama. The
rest of the year, they charge in a Stop Fake Reform petition, members
of Congress are free to "dial for dollars from Wall Street
lobbyists who want more bailout money and less accountability to
taxpayers."

"This isn't just hypocritical – it defies common sense that
you'd think the public would believe this was a principled stand
against special-interest influence."
