Ou como fazer lobby a sério:
“Inside a private room at the National Republican Club of Capitol Hill, a white brick building tucked behind the Capitol and the Library of Congress, a lawmaker delivers a report on that month’s book. The lobbyists, clutching copies signed not by the author but by the lawmaker, chime in with their favorite plot twists and passages. The chatter in the room sometimes moves away from literary topics, lobbyists who have attended the lunches said, switching to the effort to roll back the Dodd-Frank Act, the regulatory overhaul passed in response to the financial crisis.
Every time, the book club pumps thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars into each lawmaker’s campaign coffers. And now, on the eve of the midterm elections, that stream of cash is coming in handy.”
