Original message Could DU hire a DU lobbyist? Would we want to?
Could we put together that kind of money?
Could we agree enough on what we'd want him/her to lobby for?
Would just one lobbyist be meaningfully effective against all of the other lobbyists?
Are we better off contributing to other political organizations that already have lobbyists?
Please, have mercy on what is just a nearly random thought I'm running up the flagpole, triggered by a comment I saw in another thread where someone said he wasn't rich enough to hire a lobbyist. I'm hardly thinking to myself, "Oh, boy! What a brilliant idea!"
Even if this idea somehow might have had a little merit until recently, does the recent SCOTUS ruling about corporate money make it a moot point?
Maybe we could at least collectively provide a little income for a DUer in the Washington, DC area who's willing to stand around in long lines in the halls of Congress for us?May the FORCE be with you!

I would bet that the DU lobbyist would get as much attention as the NAMBLA lobbyist.Voted hottest "chick" at CU - My hotness transcends gender

I'm sure skinner's going to hop right on this.“I have learned now that while those who speak about one's miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more.”
God judged it better to bring good out of evil than to suffer no evil to exist.
