Joan Claybrook, President of Public Citizen was interviewed by Brian Lamb on C-SPAN's Washington Journal. (RealMedia video starts at about 01:02:49)

Among the topics were campaign and lobbying reform. Ms. Claybrook also points out some of the hyporcisy in the proposed new rules that would ban gifts, meals from lobbyists. For example, Nancy Pelosi's ethic reform bill does not ban the use of highly subsidized corporate jet travel by members of Congress. (topic discussed at approximately 01:07:39)

Ms. Claybrook calls for an independent Office of Public Integrity to enforce the rules.
