Lobbyist money flowing freely at convention in Denver

Brian Ross, Rhonda Schwartz and Avni Patel of ABCNews.com report that lobbyist money is flowing freely at the Democratic National Convention despite Barack Obama's position to ban lobbyist and special interest contributions to his campaign.  A spokesman for the Obama campaign stated the drawn out primary prevented Senator Obama from making changes to the handling of convention funding.  In 2006, Democratic party chairman Howard Dean tapped Steve Farber, a prominent Washington lobbyist and Denver lawyer, as co-chair and chief fundraiser of the Denver host committee.
