On the podcast today, we get a glimpse from inside the room where money changes hands. Jimmy Williams used to lobby for the powerful National Association of Realtors.

Williams tells us about some of the ridiculous issues he's lobbied for, the steady flow of money that congresspeople need, and how he wants to take down the crazy campaign finance system.

For More:

See Williams's proposed Constitutional amendment, and listen to our previous podcasts on lobbying: Jack Abramoff On Lobbying and Inside Washington's Money Machine.
