Republicans and lobbyists – familiar bedfellows

The LA Times reports on a PR disaster where a Republican assemblyman is caught making sexual boasts about his dalliances with 2 women, not realising he was being videotaped and recorded. One of the lobbyists is thought to work for a major utility firm and, as Duvall discloses accidentally, wears little “eye-patch underwear”. Noice comment Mike, eh!!! And apparently lobbyists sleeping with politicians is not uncommon in Calif as the following quote suggests: “The use of sexual favors is just one more example of the tactics that energy companies and lobbyists have used to win favorable laws from lawmakers,” said Kathay Feng, president of California Common Cause. Well PRs in Oz; do you have any tales of strange bedfellows downunder (geddit, geddit??)
