No public tours, but 344 visits by lobbyists to the White House

Post  fshnski on Tue Sep 17, 2013 8:46 am

Regular American citizens visiting the nation's capital lost access to the White House in March as President Obama eliminated public tours to make a point in his battle with House Republicans in the sequestration debate over cutting spending or raising taxes.

But hundreds of K Street lobbyists, including corporate advocates who are paid to influence policy on behalf of Fortune 500 giants, saw no change in their access to the chief executive and his senior aides, according to a Washington Examiner analysis of White House visitor logs and lobbying records.

The analysis found that 200 lobbyists met 344 times with White House officials at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. between March and May.

Among the lobbyists meeting with White House officials in the most recently available three-month period:

Didn't they just pass another law that allows the WH to keep their guests names anonymous?
