The Lobbying Game

Susan Schmidt and James V. Grimaldi of the Washington Post show how Washington politics really works in their investigative story, "How a Lobbyist Stacked the Deck." Grimaldi and Schmidt use financial records and interviews with participants to detail how powerful lobbyist Jack Abramoff, who has since been indicted, used foreign trips, job offers for a congressional staffer and his wife, and donations to conservative groups to help scuttle an anti-gambling bill on behalf of his client, an online lottery firm. The resulting story reads like a political thriller.
