Certainly, there’s been a lot of talk since last year’s midterm elections about loosening the ties between lobbyists and members of Congress. But what happens when the lobbyist and elected official in question happen to be mother and daughter?
Here’s an email from former Council member Una Clarke, now a registered lobbyist, about an April 1st event to raise money for a bipartisan non-profit group that supports women in government.
Women Celebrating Women with Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke
