On the campaign trail, Joe Cunningham couldn’t
stand lobbyists. Examples can be found here, here and here.
He even said, lobbyists have had “a stranglehold over American politics for far too long.”
But now that he’s in the swamp, he’s fallen in love with them. The Charleston Post and Courier reports that Cunningham has hired THREE DC lobbyists to work for him.
That “stranglehold” is strong in Joe’s office.
NRCC Comment: “One of Joe Cunningham’s first decisions after being elected was to hire a bunch of DC lobbyists—the very same thing he railed against on the campaign trail. Joe Cunningham is a joke, period.”—NRCC Spokeswoman Camille Gallo
