‘Worse Than Minimum-Wage-Gate’: Linda McMahon Lied About Lobbying $$$

Roll Call just broke a huge new story on video of Linda McMahon telling a gathering of tea party supporters in Waterbury in April: “I have not spent lobbying dollars in Washington.”

The Roll Call report notes that disclosure records show that World Wrestling Entertainment, the company McMahon headed, spent at least $680,000 in Washington lobbying from 2001 through 2008.

McMahon spokesman Ed Patru said McMahon “probably could have been more precise.”

The Capitol Watch blog of the Hartford Courant commented on Twitter, “Roll Call story on McMahon’s lobbying statements could prove far more damaging than minimum wage-gate.”
