An audit released by the Wisconsin Ethics Commission suggests more than 14 percent of the lobbyists working at the state capitol may not be authorized. No names were released in the report. Any lobbyist in violation of state law could face thousands of dollars in fines. A spokesperson for the Association of Wisconsin Lobbyist says he doubts anyone had bad intentions, blaming the disparity on process and paperwork. Of 539 lobbyists trying to persuade lawmakers to support or oppose bills, 78 weren’t registered as required.
