    What is the Tea Party position (in general) on lobbyists and lobbying?

    And, if the Tea Party is against lobbyists, has the organization asked candidates for various offices to pledge not to deal with lobbyists, to cut them off completely?

    FBI: Pakistani spies spent millions lobbying US
    Jul 19,`11 WASHINGTON (AP) - For years, the Pakistani spy agency funneled millions of dollars to a Washington non-profit group in a secret effort to influence Congress and the White House, the Justice Department said Tuesday in court documents that are certain to complicate already strained relations between the U.S. and Pakistan.
