Pombo & Elite Corporate Lobbyists

The Hill: "The concerns of lobbyists are nothing if not particular. What is the proper use of corporate jets? What’s the best way to grow a PAC?

For the past 40 years, an elite group of Washington insiders has met periodically to mull questions just like those.

Sometimes a guest speaker is invited to address a members luncheon. House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Richard Pombo (R-Calif.) was one recent guest." (source)
