From your article (wes is lying, as usual...or at least being disingenuous. Going on ww's record, I say lying.):
Obama's ban on lobbyists money is not ironclad. He does accept money from lobbyists who do not do business with the federal government and he also accepts money from spouses and family members of lobbyists.

I guess this confirm that Hillary's is not gonna be the Veep
On a related note, the DNC futher stipulated - "Also In keeping with our nominee's (Obama) positions, while we not be accepting donations from federal lobbyists or political action committees, we will be acceping donations from convited felons or folks with ties to orginazed crime in the Chicago area."

Lottie Shackleford, the Vice Chair of the DNC, is a registered lobbyist. Will he be resigning soon? I doubt it. This is just more window dressing from Obama.
Shackleford And The Obama Campaign Would Not Comment. "Shackleford did
not respond to messages seeking comment. Paxton declined to comment when
asked whether Shackleford's role conflicted with Obama's lobbyist
restrictions. Obama spokesman Bill Burton did not respond to messages
seeking comment." (Matt Kelley, "DNC Will Refuse Funds From Lobbyists,
PACs," USA Today, 6/6/08)
