Who are the Lobbyists we “hate”?

 

Wonder who they are talking about when "they" condemn lobbyists for influencing Congress?

Check this list:  Political Advocacy Groups: Alphabetic List of all Groups

Go explore this site and tell me if you still think we should outlaw "lobbyists" as a group.  Want to just eliminate the most influential?  Here are the top 7 "most cited lobbyists" between 2004 and 2006 according to the above researchers:

The most often cited groups were: (all with 4,000+)
1. American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
2. The American Legion
3. American Association for Retired Persons (AARP)
4. National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)
5. Amnesty International
6. American Cancer Society
7. Sierra Club

Clearly some are good, some bad.  How do we police this without introducing bias?  Suggestions welcome!
