Politico's Mike Allen reports that the American Conservative Union tried to sell its support to FedEx for $2 million. But after FedEx refused to pay, the group flipped its support to UPS. Allen says "The conservative group's remarkable demand" is "black-and-white proof of the longtime Washington practice known as 'pay for play.'"
More: "For the $2 million+, ACU offered a range of services that included: 'Producing op-eds and articles written by ACU's Chairman David Keene and / or other members of the ACU's board of directors. (Note that Mr. Keene writes a weekly column that appears in The Hill.)'"
