Currently there are about 9,500 lobbyists registered at the federal level. That means there are about 18 lobbyists for each member of the House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. USA Today reported this week that lobbying firms managed by former campaign aides, fundraisers and others with ties to President Trump and Vice President Pence have collected at least $28 million in federal lobbying fees since Trump assumed the presidency. What are lobbyists? What do they do? Is the common perception of lobbyists accurate? Join us as we figure this out and other topics!
