[Updated] Latest Podesta Group Foreign Agent disclosure filing on lobbying for Kenya: Media, Congress and Executive Branch, State Comptrollers and Treasurers

[Update March 25–readers have asked how much Kenyan taxpayers are giving the Podesta Group.  According to the Justice Department filings, the current 1 year contract through May 2016 costs $360,000 US, payable at $30,000 month in advance, plus expenses. So the minimum cost of the “contacts” shown at the link below for June-August is $90,000.]

The Podesta Group filed its latest supplement to its Foreign Agent Registration Act disclosure of lobbying contacts for the Government of Kenya with the U.S. Justice Department last month, covering its work during the third quarter of 2015:

  1. There are many jobs out there.

    Why choose one where you have to avoid looking at yourself in the mirror in the morning?

    Life is short. Why not choose, like the Buddha reminds us, Samma-Ajiva: Right Livelihood. This is a livelihood based on correct action and the ethical principal of non-exploitation. In the end, all BMWs rust.
