ABSTRACT
The article informs that many may have the impression that issue advocacy on Capitol Hill is an ugly job done by a group of slick individuals known as lobbyists. While this characterization fits in some instances, there is a group of staunch advocates who should be classified as lobbyists but rarely are the members of Congress. Paid by the voters to represent their district, as opposed to those of us who are on the payroll of a special interest group, members of Congress spend a great deal of time influencing and attempting to influence other members of Congress and the administration on a wide range of issues that impact their constituencies.
