Sunday I blogged about the Cartelization of American Business. In that post I explored the role of lobbyists in creating industry cartels that subvert free market economics.
The screen shot above shows that Enterprise Rent-a-Car where Ray Wagner is employed as Government and Public Affairs Vice-President has hired several left-leaning lobbying firms. Since Ray Wagner directs Enterprise's lobbying efforts, the lobbying firms listed above are ones that he has chosen to represent Enterprise before local, state, and federal officials.
What's interesting is that employees of these lobbying firms have donated to the campaign of Ray Wagner's wife, Ann Wagner. Ann Wagner is a Republican candidate for the US House in Missouri's 2nd Congressional District. Hobbits Source Blog has details about Ann Wagner's donations from the Podesta Group and Ogilvy Government Relations.
If Ann Wagner is a conservative, why is she drawing donations from establishment leftists? If she's going to argue as she has about her Enterprise donors, that her relationships with lobbyist donors have been built over decades, then voters in Missouri's 2nd Congressional District need to consider that when they enter the voting booth.
