Earmark lobbying firm raised funds for Boxer

In a better world, a story like this would be a front-page scandal, but this sort of thing is par for the course in both parties:

The partners at K Street lobbying firm Alcade & Fay hosted a $2,000-a-head breakfast fundraiser for Sen. Barbara Boxer. The AP reports on some of the favors Boxer has done for Alcade & Fay’s clients:

The firm’s web site lists numerous California clients, including the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District. The Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks earmarks, said Boxer obtained $1.9 million in the 2010 fiscal year for construction work designed to help the bridge withstand a major earthquake.

The firm’s website also lists the Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit District as a client. Boxer requested $2.5 million during the past fiscal year for the project, which involves upgrading existing rail lines and building new bike and pedestrian paths linking 14 stations.
