No Payment, No Representation

The latest on lobbying, from NPR, continues to clarify the relationship between our elected representatives and their constituencies:
One time, Williams says, he took a couple clients to meet a Congressman when his PAC had fallen behind in its donations. 
"I've put in two calls to your PAC director, and I haven't received any return phone calls," the Congressman said, according to Williams. "Now why am I taking this meeting?"
Why indeed.
