Finally I agree with Hillary on something

http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/02/hillary-calls-for-lobbyist-shaming-new-hampshire

<Asked at a town hall meeting at New Hampshire's Henniker College how to handle the increasing role of moneyed interests in Washington, Hillary Clinton told supporters that lobbyists should be exposed and publicly called out.

"Maybe use social media? Maybe make a concerted effort to really call these people out all the time, get some social pressure on them, get people to know their names," Clinton suggested, pointing, with obvious relish, to how the New York Daily News has taken to calling the National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre "Jihadi Wayne" for his refusal to support blocking individuals on the "no fly list" from getting gun permits.>

<Out of all the presidential candidates, Republican or Democrat, Clinton has raised the most money—$717,000—from lobbyist bundlers.>

This reads like something out of The Onion, or at least The Onion before IAC (with Board member Chelsea Clinton) bought it.

3. Hillary I'm taking your advice and calling out lobbyist Steven Elmendorf!

You know him, former chief of staff to Dick Gephardt. He has raised over $172,000 for your campaign. Among his top clients are Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, the casino industry, Time Warner, Verizon, Facebook, Microsoft and Monsanto.

What are you going to do for Steven's clients to pay them back?

4. And Hillary, I'm taking your advice and calling out Tony Podesta!

You know him, he's the brother of your campaign manager John Podesta. Tony has raised over $205,000 for you. His clients come from the military-industrial complex (Lockheed Martin, Bechtel, General Dynamics), health insurance (Blue Cross Blue Shield), big pharma (Merck), banking, hedge funds and private equity (Wells Fargo, Credit Suisse and KKR) and a lot of the foreign governments, including a bunch that your State Department has accused of human rights abuses: Saudi Arabia (which also donates to the Clinton Foundation in gratitude for the arms sales you approved), Azerbaijan, Burma and the Maldives.

7. Let's start with her funders and PAC owners.

Then we can talk, Hillary. Only then.

Put up, or shut up.

Meanwhile Bernie is a clean mean machine.
