WH Logs Reveal Obama Met With AFL-CIO & ACLU Lobbyists Over 50 Times Each
An interactive and searchable database of White House visitor logs is turning up some interesting findings and reveals a “steady stream of lobbyists” visiting the Obama White House, reports the Washington Post.
For example, AFL-CIO lobbyist Bill Samuel visited the White House over 50 times, and American Civil Liberties Union lobbyist Laura Murphy visited almost as frequently.
By comparison, Speaker of the House John Boehner has only visited the White House 23 times.
Oprah Winfrey has visited five times.
