Oh, and the fun continues.
K Street Project? What K Street Project. From the Santorum press conference today on the hill …
QUESTION: Senator Santorum, you have been the Senate’s liaison for the so-called K Street projects. It’s been reported you hosted monthly meetings with lobbyists, the top lobbyists in town. What makes you the correct person to lead this charge to reform?
SANTORUM: Well, I don’t know what you mean by Senate liaison to the, quote, “K Street Project.” I’m not aware of any Senate liaison job that I do for the K Street Project.
What I’ve done is I do host meetings, you know, once or twice a month with members who represent a variety of different groups in Washington, D.C.
I know Senator Hutchison hosts some, Senator Smith hosts some, all in an attempt to try to make sure that what we’re trying to accomplish is communicated to those who represent organizations who could be helpful to us in getting that message out across America.
I think it’s important that we communicate to people who could be supportive of us to make sure that that grassroots activity and that information gets out.
I think it’s been actually very, helpful for us to be able to transmit that information and to get feedback from people who are obviously skilled in the area of legislation as to how, you know, we’re coming across and what we’re being perceived and what we need to do to improve our chances of being successful here.
Nuthin to see here. Just some grassroots activity …
