NPR plays “Name that Lobbyist”

NPR photographer Robb Hill wondered who would be interested enough to attend the meeting where 22 senators gathered to start working on overhauling healthcare in the US. So he took four photographs of the audience, and is inviting people to identify the people in the photos. So far, the public has identified eight lobbyists (plus three more that attended but were not in the photos). There are three in this photo — can you identify more of them?

    To set the record straight… While yes I did and do wonder who all the lobbyists are. I didn’t just walk into the Dirksen Senate Building and take four photos and have NPR put them online. This was part of a package NPR did and is doing on how lobbyists work and effect the legislative process.

    The total number identified online is now 15.

    I am a freelance photographer, NPR is a client (a good one).

    These are the people who should not be allowed within a thousand miles of Washington, or any other building with ANY elected officials in it!
