Harpers magazine writer Ken Silverstein, recently went undercover to expose the dirt on Washington Lobbyists. Yes, we know that most of these Lobbyists are slimy, but Silverstein shows just how low they are willing to go for the right price. Apparently, a few lobbying firms are willing to help reshape the image of some of the worlds worst dictators.
It's ironic that these K Street, U.S. government connected and U.S. government supported lobbyists are in the nerve center of this so-called Democracy (D.C.) yet they are willing to support dictatorships that are antithetical to the values that this country claims to hold dear.
