ABSTRACT
The article discusses political lobbying in the U.S. legislative processes. It is difficult to determine which are useful lobbies and which are detrimental. However, there are some practices which would be generally condemned by fair-minded people. Practices such as bribery, coercion, underhanded dealing, falsification, false pretense are equivocally condemned by these people. Today, the lobbying organizations in the U.S. are demanding special favor in the community and are expanding their claims, some of them by every conceivable means, fair or unfair. Their activities are detrimental to the whole interest of the country.
