When Alaska's Young needed help, lobbyists ponied up

Facing bad publicity and a dwindling campaign account, U.S. Rep. Don Young last year turned to the 'AK Wolfpack,' a group of more than 20 lobbyists, including former Young staffers and retired former congressmen. Of 27 who received an e-mail warning that his defeat would be bad for their business, 23 were registered lobbyists. They've provided a quarter of his campaign funds since.
