Summary The Wall Street Journal turns its eyes on the United States Congress, examining "how special-interest spending and out-of-control lobbying fed cronyism and corruption in 2006." The newspaper looked at how "earmarks" were "an invitation to corruption," how "Republicans and Democrats alike steered millions in public funds to their friends and family for personal and political gain." The Journal also looked at the relationships that can influence people as the worlds of lobbyists and lawmakers intertwine.
