Lobbying Datapoint of the Day

The Center for Responsive Politics does some adding up, and concludes that the 300 TARP recipients between them spent a total of $77 million last year on lobbying, on top of $37 million in federal campaign contributions, for a total of $114 million.

Between them, Citigroup, Bank of America, and JP Morgan Chase spent $21.8 million on lobbyists last year, as well as $15.3 million in campaign contributions, for a total of $37.2 million. And that’s not even including Bob Rubin’s salary.
