If you Google 'Obama law license' you'll come up with all sorts of debunkers for this one.
Ain't gonna happen, but there you go.
Here's the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995 and its "technical corrections" follow-up Act of 1998:
And here's the "Honest Leadership and Open Government Act of 2007"
How many laws do we need to regulate lobbyists, those who might possibly rub elbows with a politician (like me, but don't), congresscritters, and senators? Not to mention cabinet secretaries and other high federal government officials?
You'll note I didn't bother with the boatload of state and local laws.
Most of the feds wouldn't accept even a coke out of our coke machine, but would accept a cup of coffee out of a styrofoam cup if they came to the office for a demo of equipment. On occasion I would have sandwiches brought into the office for them, so they could use their lunch hours to view the equipment.
The head of purchasing for the City of St Louis was so scrupulous that we couldn't give any Christmas gifts (knew better to do anything but mail a Christmas card to my long time fed customers with a picture of my dogs by the Christmas tree). The only thing that I gave to the city was perhaps a basket of cookies or other food items that could be shared by everyone, not just the buyers. I was so proud that kept the city copier contact for almost 10 years, never giving them anything but good service from my company.
I chose to have the gov't people as my clients, because there were no under the table dealings. I just plain old enjoyed my contacts, who became friends over the years.
If only the higher ups would follow the same code of ethics.
