A True Border War

The inner workings of lobbying firms is not really my cup of tea, but the St. Pete Times has a this fairly fascinating article on the civil war which ripped apart one of the most powerful lobbying firms in Georgia and Florida.

Florida lobbying powerhouse Southern Strategy Group filed suit recently against its former lobbying partners in Georgia, accusing them of stealing a client list worth $600,000 a year in fees and seeking more than $50-million in damages.

Money, politics and unfettered hubris. So who inhabits a lower circle of hell? Insurance agents or lobbyists?

Stealing clients? In Corporate American Land? Well, hmmmmph, I never...

Note Amber's note about ebc. Just in case you ever get too drunk.

I wouldn't know a thing about that sorta stuff though...
