Exile on K Street

A well-written and witty overview of the K Street Project from the Nation:


Meanwhile, another member of the House Republican leadership, John Doolittle of California, "helped steer defense funding" to PerfectWave, according to the Washington Post. The paper notes that the company's "officials and lobbyists helped raise at least $85,000" for Doolittle and his Leadership PAC from 2002 to 2005. Moreover, Doolittle's wife was employed by an organization set up by ASG founder Ed Buckham. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Wilkes "befriended other legislators, too. He ran a hospitality suite, with several bedrooms, in Washington--first in the Watergate Hotel and then in the Westin Grand near Capitol Hill."
Stay tuned.
