Thursday, January 19, 2006 | Critics question lobbyist's donations to GOP | Critics question lobbyist's donations to GOP: "A legislative Democratic leader Wednesday accused a state lobbyist of serving as a conduit to convert taxpayer dollars into Republican campaign contributions.

House Democratic Chairman Jim Dunnam said lobbyist Drew Maloney had made $250 in political donations before Gov. Rick Perry hired Maloney's Federalist Group for $180,000 a year to lobby Congress for the state.

Dunnam said that since that time, Maloney has given $75,000 to Republican congressional committees — including $750 meant to help defeat an incumbent Texas congressman."

How corrupt can they get? Surely this has to be against the law.
