PROMISES, PROMISES: Much Lobbyist Help Undisclosed
Few members of Congress are disclosing that lobbyists are helping them raise campaign cash despite a new law that was supposed to shed light on the ties between lawmakers and the capital's influence brokers, an Associated Press review found.

Though lobbyist-hosted fundraisers are workaday events in Washington -- typically advertised to political insiders by fax and word of mouth -- only about two dozen lawmakers have reported lobbyists raising money for them.
