Lobbyists in the White House.

Lobbyist Jack Abramhoff and his team spent more time at the White House than George Bush did.

WASHINGTON - The Secret Service has agreed to turn over White House visitor
logs that will show how often convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff met with Bush
administration officials - and with whom he met.

The president has said he does not know Abramoff personally.

Abramoff was a $100,000 fundraiser for Bush and lobbying records obtained by
the AP show his lobbying team logged nearly 200 meetings with the administration
during its first 10 months in office on behalf of one of his clients, the
Northern Mariana Islands.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
