Well, if you put it that way, John
Sweeney's Spinner explains the congressman's vote for sham-form instead of reform honestly. Why did Sweeney vote against the Democratic Bill that offered real lobbyist reform?
...it was loaded with "poison pills" intended to make Republicans defeat it.
"Sweeney didn't feel pressured to be seen supporting lobbying reform"
Really, after all the hoopla over his Utah Lobbyist Ski Trip? Or the tax-payer funded fantasy camp for staff, lobbyists and donors in Lake Placid? No pressure?
And "poison pills"!?!
Like the kind that would mean you couldn't go on vacations with lobbyists anymore, Mr. Sweeney?
