Hey @Politico, you might do well to refer to Ballard Partners not as a "state lobbying firm" but as "registered FARA agents for Kremliny clients." https://www.politico.com/story/2019/09/20/trump-desantis-florida-susie-wiles-1504981 …
Or try this fact-based lede: "Trump's main Florida lobbyist - whose firm now represents Turkish money launderers Halkbank, Qatar, Zimbabwe, Azerbaijan, and more..." https://efile.fara.gov/ords/f?p=1381:200:1341755228528::NO:RP,200:P200_REG_NUMBER:6415 …
"JOURNALISTS": Can I spell it out for you? F-A-R-A D-O-T G-O-V.
Or, if you're really ambitious, query the Senate Lobbyist Database and look for unregistered foreign entities. It is SUPER EASY. Couple clicks. https://soprweb.senate.gov/index.cfm?event=processSearchCriteria …
