Kerry bites hands that feed him

Washington Post:

"Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.), who has made a fight against corporate special interests a centerpiece of his front-running campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, has raised more money from paid lobbyists than any other senator over the past 15 years, federal records show.

"Kerry, a 19-year veteran of the Senate who fought and won four expensive political campaigns, has received nearly $640,000 from lobbyists, many representing telecommunications and financial companies with business before his committee, according to Federal Election Commission data compiled by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

...

"Because Kerry has made his fight against 'Washington special interests' a new theme of his presidential campaign, campaign rivals and campaign finance watchdogs have accused him of hypocrisy."

Since when has hypocracy slowed a Dem attack?
