Phone Lobbyist Calls Employee/Representative On Florida House Floor To Pressure Him

Call by phone official draws ire in House via News Of The Weird

Really, this article should be in "News of How Slimy Lobbyists Are". Florida, like a lot of states, has a part-time legislature. One of Florida's Representatives is employed by BellSouth, and recieved a call on the House floor pressuring him to vote opposite of what he was going to do, from BellSouth. Reportedly, he was near tears, and his fellow Representatives were outraged at the BellSouth VP/lobbyist's tactics.

How utterly slimy can you get.
