Mulvaney, a former GOP congressman from SC, said Tuesday that he would only meet with lobbyists who had donated to his political campaigns but valued the opinions of his constituents over hired guns.

Norm Eisen, a former top ethics official under President Barack Obama, told Business Insider that Mulvaney "better hope that he never went beyond selling access".
Earlier this year, Mulvaney ended the CFPB's investigation into a South Carolina-based lender, World Acceptance Corporation, that donated $4,500 to Mulvaney's congressional campaigns, The Times reported. That Mulvaney would engage in this behavior is not particularly surprising, but the fact that he so openly admits to it, in front of an industry group he is supposed to regulate, shows a striking level of disregard for even the appearance of basic propriety.

The evidentiary bar was raised after the Supreme Court's June 2016 decision in McDonnell v. While he's issued an order barring executive branch officials from lobbying for foreign governments or political parties after they leave his administration, Trump has otherwise done nothing to target D.C. sleaziness.
Credit where credit is due, Mulvaney's startling admission is an example of honesty that is all too rare in Washington.
