Dan Coats says that, if he’s selected as Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, he won’t favor the companies he lobbied for, honest!

This is a brazen conflict of interest that the Sunlight Pledge will expose, sooner and easier, to the voting public.

Demand Sunlight! You won’t get it from politicians as wired in to lobbying as this one.
