It takes a gifted lobbyist to get the job done without doling out gifts to legislators. Take Andrew Blunt, for example. According to his report for March, posted today on the Missouri Ethics Commission website, he reported no expenditures. In fact, Blunt has reported no expenditures for this year or for 2005.
It sure makes it easier to lobby when your brother is the governor. By the way, today is the younger Blunt's 30th birthday. It is likely he received more from the politicians than they have received from him.
