Aw yes! These "leaders" were wined and dinned by lobbyists from the best K Street Washington DC firms to whom city and county officials nationwide sell themselves to like hookers.

Taxpayer money used was probably minuscule. What we the people need to see is how much the K Street Washington DC Lobbyists kicked in for this boondoggle.

Did you know that many of these lobbyists actually draft and write the legislation supposedly passed off by Members of Congress?

God only knows the damage that these K Street Lobbyists can do if allowed by a small group of pudknocker government officials from Podunk.
