Obama Fact Check

Sen. Obama and Lobbyists

During his speech last night, Sen. Obama continued his negative attacks on Hillary. Among them:
It's a choice between a candidate who's taken more money from Washington lobbyists than either Republican in this race and a campaign that has not taken a dime of their money.
Sen. Obama's comments come on the same week Public Citizen released a report detailing ten bundlers for Sen. Obama who have registered as federal lobbyists.
Sen. Obama has also taken money from former lobbyists, partners of lobbyists, people who hire lobbyists, lobbyists' spouses, and state lobbyists.
Until he started running for president, Sen. Obama took money from federal lobbyists and, as a state senator, directly from corporations.
