Lobbying Changes Divide House GOP

Lobbying Changes Divide House GOP:
"Just two weeks after House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) pledged to pass far-reaching changes to the rules of lobbying on Capitol Hill, House Republican members pushed back hard against those proposals yesterday, charging that their leaders are overreacting to a growing corruption scandal."

The Repugs can't even pass the watered-down versions of lobby reform. That's probably difficult when a lobbyist has his hand in your pocket. A little too close to the short hairs, so to speak.
