David Sirota reports: "Enron lobbyist Michael Lewan, Joe Lieberman's former chief of staff, is "work[ing] to quell Democratic discontent with Lieberman and to steer [Senators] away from campaigning against his former boss." (…) Lewan's loyalty is understandable - as the Washington Monthly reported, Lieberman obediently "balked" at Democratic demands to use his committee chairmanship to intensify the Enron investigation. What is surprising and nauseating is that Lieberman's Enron lobbyist has any influence over other Democrats.via Jane Hamsher at firedoglake
