Pro-Bonner Ad Causes a Backlash

Several K Streeters said it had been years since they had spoken to Bonner’s class. Some lobbyists complained that they were listed as being affiliated with Members of Congress they no longer work for. For example, Mildred Webber was listed as working for Rep. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), and David Thomas was listed as a staffer to Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.). Neither has worked on the Hill for several years. Webber is a lobbyist at the National Association of Broadcasters, and Thomas is now at Mehlman Vogel Castagnetti.

Bonner’s spokesman said that although Bonner did see the ad before it ran, he did not ask for it to be placed and had given his teaching stipend to charity.
