Some possible lobbying losers could include the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), which lobbied to inflict the 9-11 attacks on America, as well as the K-Street Project, the Carlisle Group and Halliburton, who suffer from a negative image due to the treasonous and illegal war-profiteering policies they have steered in recent years. However, it remains unlikely that such unpopular policies will stop lobbying influence on Congress.
"It's just a bump in the road," said Lobbying Analyst Jack Kass. "Because of the war, and that whole section of Washington dedicated to funneling money from defense companies to lobbyists and then to government officials, people have got a negative image of lobbying. It's all wrong, though. They're not just there to buy votes for defense companies; there are the pharmaceutical companies, the energy companies, and so forth."
It is hoped that dispondent Congressmen, like Miwards, will soon be inundated by lucrative secret offers to pass legislation in favor of industry and business. The influx of illegal special interest money will help to ease the consciences of Congressional delegates who in principle like to bolster their image of democratic representation.
