Faces of Corruption: Eleanor Holmes Norton D-DC

Meet Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-DC. Seems she called up a lobbyist and requested a campaign donation a couple weeks ago, but the lobbyist was not in at the time so she left a voice mail. In the voice mail message it would appear that she is implying that if the lobbyist were to make a campaign donation, she would be in a position to influence things to the benefit of the lobbyist and/or his or her clients. This is skirting very close to (and may in fact be over) the line of soliciting a bribe.
