Issue One Hires Lott, Crossroads Strategies for Electoral Reform Push
From Politico Influence on 3/22/2022
Issue One, the political reform advocacy group, has hired a team of lobbyists from Crossroads Strategies that includes former Sen. Trent Lott to push for updates to the Electoral Count Act, the 19th-century law that governs certification of presidential elections. A bipartisan group of senators is working on potential reforms to the law, which Issue One argues in a blog post on its website has numerous gaps and ambiguities that were revealed in the aftermath of the 2020 election and “exposed the nation to enormous risks.”
Crossroads’ Mathew Lapinski and Alex Gleason will also work on the account. Crossroads is the only outside lobbying firm currently on retainer for Issue One.
