At CREW, we’re compiling a list of Political Action Committees (PACs) controlled by members of the U.S. House and Senate.

Today, when I called Rep. William Clay’s (D-MO) congressional office they referred me to the campaign director, Michelle Clay (who I presume is his sister and registered lobbyist we mentioned in our report, Family Affair – House.)

When I called Ms. Clay, she asked me to repeat where I was calling from four times. When I asked her if Rep.
