Amgen Lobbyist Donated $3,000 to Mitch McConnell in December

Hunter Bates, a longtime aide to Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), donated $3,000 to McConnell’s campaign in December while he was on contract with pharmaceutical giant Amgen to lobby on “fiscal cliff issues,” according to recently released FEC reports. McConnell has faced criticism at home and in Washington for his possible role in the $500 million windfall for Amgen that was included in the final fiscal cliff legislation.
