Star-Bulletin: "'Embedded lobbyist' business interns out"

Richard Borreca covered the new rule changes at the legislature in a fine story in today's Star-Bulletin, 'Embedded lobbyist' business interns out.

Small thing in the article--a quote from Senate President Colleen Hanabusa referring to the interns as lobbyists:
"A lot of it was the concern raised about the lobbyists, even if we don't believe there was any evidence of it -- just the appearance to the public that special-interest groups have had certain access to individuals because they provide them with staff," said Hanabusa (D, Nanakuli-Makua).
Maybe it was a slip of the tongue, but it shows the power of blogs these days. Even the senate president now calls the interns lobbyists. Small thing, I know, but the truth eventually leaks out.
