Does a Stimulus Lobbyist Work for You?

by Olga Pierce, ProPublica -- March 30, 2009 9:30 am EDT

We've already discussed what stimulus lobbyists are lobbying about, but who are they lobbying for?

Many of them, it turns out, work for municipalities, counties and tribal governments. Does that include yours?

Here’s a list of all the filings we could find -- you can search for yourself. If your tax dollars are paying for a lobbyist, maybe you can make some requests of your own. A free ride from the Capitol to the Washington Monument anyone? Let us know what you find.
