Ray LaHood was a Republican member of Congress, and now he is the Republican in President Obama's Cabinet, serving as Transportation Secretary. His son, Darin, was appointed to a vacant State Senate seat in 2009, and he is currently running for a full term.
Bernie Robinson was chief of staff for liberal Democrat James McGovern of Massachusetts. Now, he's a wealthy lobbyist with the powerful Livingston Group, where he lobbies on transportation issues.
Robinson agreed to host a fundraiser for Darin LaHood's re-elect. The younger LaHood sits on the transportation committee in Springfield, and again, his dad is Obama's Tranpo Secretary.
This arrangement struck the folks at the Center for Public Integrity as a bit sticky. The fundraiser has since been moved away from Robinson's house to the Capitol Hill Club.
