Clinton Spinner Outed As Lobbyist On Air

Jason Linkins, The Huffington Post

MATTHEWS: This is a strange conversation. Secretary Slater, you work for Patton and Boggs in Washington, a major lobbying firm...are you a lobbyist as well? I don't understand these conversations about lobbyists. Mitt Romney's father became the head of America Motors because of his success as a lobbyist for the American motor industry. Why is everybody disowning the lobbyist connections all of the sudden when you guys have grown up around lobbyists? Mr. Secretary, aren't you a lobbyist for Patton and Boggs?

SLATER: I'm an attorney at Patton and Boggs and we do some lobbying.
