The Steve Some Award

This week’s Steve Some Self-Promotion Award goes to lobbyist Peter Lillo. Lillo’s official biography, printed on his firm website, says that “Pete was also named to the most recent PoliticsNJ Power List, which lists the 100 most influential people in New Jersey.”

That’s not accurate — Lillo hasn’t been on the power list for several years.

Update: And in an especially sleezy move, Lillo also wins this week’s Paul Stuart Aronsohn Award — late this afternoon, Lillo’s firm updated his website to note that “Pete was also named to the 2004 PoliticsNJ Power List, which lists the 100 most influential people in New Jersey.” Then, Lillo e-mailed PoliticsNJ.com with this message: “Tell whomever there to get their facts correct. My bio says 2004, not 2007. So, glad the facts are represented so well.”
