Another Obama Ally Sells Access to Administration Officials

showPicturephppng

Business Forward is a 3-year-old trade association designed to be a liberal counter weight to the Chamber of Commerce. Many of its staff have had stints in the White House or the Obama campaign. Funded by corporate donations, it facilitates meetings between business executives and Obama Administration officials. Like OFA, the group raises suspicions of selling access to government officials.

The Associated Press reported this morning that “more than 50 corporate members pay $25,000 or $50,000 a year to be involved in briefings between Obama administration officials and business leaders, small businesses and entrepreneurs.”

Its founding members include America’s bluest chip companies, including AT&T and Microsoft, McDonalds, Google, Citi, Comcast and Facebook.
