POLITICO review shows that the Obama administration has hired about 70 previously registered corporate, trade association and for-hire lobbyists. And many of these former lobbyists work at the highest levels of government.

Take Broderick Johnson, who is a top aide to Obama as a liaison between federal agencies and the White House. He's the husband of NPR anchor Michele Norris and is known to be close to Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. Until 2011, Johnson was a well-known Democratic lobbyist for companies including Microsoft, Pearson, Globalstar, Comcast and FedEx. Then he disappeared from the lobbying rolls.

"I am in this race to tell the corporate lobbyists that their days of setting the agenda in Washington are over," Obama said in 2007 according to a post on Change.gov which is, gallingly, still live. "I have done more than any other candidate in this race to take on lobbyists -- and won. They have not funded my campaign, they will not run my White House, and they will not drown out the voices of the American people when I am president."
