Info: In earlier 2008, Ken Dilanian wrote a front page Special Report for USA Today entitled "Lobbyists Find More Ways to Bond with Lawmakers." In it he maps out the locations of the growing number of lobbying firms and special interest groups who have bought or leased townhouses and properties near Capitol Hill. He shows how these groups give or rent their locations to Members of Congress for fundraisers in ways where limited amount of information has to be divulged to the FEC. These are legal and are not covered under the gift ban. Using Mr. Dilanian's research, we captured many of these locations on video which we show during the program. We also present USA Today's interactive web page that gives additional information on the members of Congress who used the facilities.
