Ethics in Lobbying The American University Center for Congressional and Presidential

Studies with the American League of Lobbyists sponsored a forum on

lobbying in Congress. Panelists focused on the balance between

constituency service and unethical legislative practices, which was

the main issue in the recent “Keating Five” scandal. The "Keating

Five" were five senators who allegedly received large financial

contributions to their congressional campaigns from the head of a

Colorado savings and loan in exchange for deliberately interfering with federal investigations into the finances of the savings and loan.

Panel members also discussed reforms in campaign finance and

congressional lobbying regulations. After their presentations the panel members responded to audience members' questions. close
