Younger Blunt continues thrifty lobbying

Lobbyists' monthly reports were added to the Missouri Ethics Commission website today and Andrew Blunt, younger brother of Governor Matt Blunt and son of Seventh District Congressman Roy Blunt, once again did not spend a dime to try to influence legislators. That lack of spending on their behalf doesn't seem to be driving away Blunt's roster of important clients, including Ameren UE, United Parcel Service, the Friedman Foundation, AGP, AT&T, Kraft Foods, Miller Brewing, Missouri Hospital Association and Phillip Morris.
It definitely pays to have a brother in the governor's mansion. Blunt has not reported providing gifts to any legislators during 2005 or 2006.

Why wine and dine the legislators when you have an 'in' with the boy guv? Bypass the others and go straight to the top.

Conflict of interest, anyone?
