    Why is Mitt Romney palling around with Solyndra Lobbyists?



    Romney tied to former Solyndra lobbyist

    By Alicia M. Cohn - 10/27/11 12:04 PM ET


    Mitt Romney is facing scrutiny this week for associating himself with a lobbyist whose firm worked for failed California solar panel company Solyndra.

    Lobbyist Alex Mistri co-hosted a Romney fundraiser Wednesday that included a number of lobbyists and members of Congress, held at the American Trucking Association near D.C.'s Capitol Hill.

    "Mistri is a managing director of the lobbyist firm Glover Park Group LLC. The firm worked for Solyndra in the weeks leading up to the company’s declared bankruptcy, though the firm was reportedly never paid for their work. Mistri is also a Republican donor and has donated money to Romney’s campaign this year"

    Y'all do realize that lobbying firms have more than one client, right?
