I was wondering why Kosovo had so much lobbying going on in the FARA database.

The usual suspects: Bob Dole's Firm, FARA agents for the Bonesaw Mafia - but Madison Global is interesting. It's run by Syrian immigrant Joseph Allaham, a successful NYC restaurateur. He's the guy who paid Mike Huckabee $50,000 to go to Qatar.

Mike, hope it was a great trip.
