PEU Lobbying in 2012

The Private Equity trade group spread nearly $1.7 million in 9 months to lobby the following groups.  PECKER, my pet name for the association, employed two lobbyists, Steve Judge and Jason Mulvihill to advocate on behalf of private equity underwriters (PEU's).

Rest assured your voice is drowned out by peckers.

Update 1-26-13:  SEC Chief Nominee Mary Jo White worked for Debevoise & Plimpton, a law firm that also lobbies.  Two thirds of its lobbying revenue came from PECKER-PEGCC. 

Update 8-10-22:  The PEU lobby has been recast as American Investment Council.  It's still full of peckers who successfully fought to keep its preferred "carried interest" taxation, yet again.  Blue Corporacrats showed their PEU love.
