Reminder: Mick Mulvaney, Trump’s incoming “acting” chief of staff, told a conference of bankers that as a congressman he granted meetings only to paying lobbyists. “If you’re a lobbyist who never gave us money, I didn’t talk to you. If you’re a lobbyist who gave us money, I might talk to you.”

  1. **Don’t:** be a dick, be a bigot, brigade, troll or advocate violence. It’ll get you banned.
    See the sidebar for the full version of the rules.

    **Do:** report rule-breaking comments to the special investigators.

  2. I have disliked Mulvaney on personal and political grounds since his dishonorable race against longtime Rep. John Spratt. This surprises me none.

    …. then we got Ralph Norman, who pulled out his gun at a friendly campaign chat.

  3. So, not to be a dick, I am so pro Mueller, and against everything Trump represents., and buying time is not good for democracy.

    I will counter though, for a banker this makes sense. You can’t let every wingnut lobby group a voice. Especially in banking.

    That said the whole lobby movement is part of the American problem.

  4. He said he always talked to his constituents. I don’t think lobbyists need anyone to go to bat for them.

    Edit: OK, I’m an idiot. Lobbyists don’t always represent evil. Leaving this up because I’m an idiot.
