1. Gift Tickets

Sandra, an assistant commissioner, has asked a lobbyist to arrange to get her tickets to an event sponsored by the ABC Company.  The ABC Company is not an employer of a lobbyist, but is a member of an association that does employ the lobbyist.  Can the lobbyist arrange for Sandra to receive tickets?

  • Yes, because Sandra is not an elected official.
  • Yes, because ABC is not the employer of a lobbyist.
  • No, the lobbyist cannot arrange for Sandra to receive tickets because it is an “indirect” gift from the lobbyist.
  • No, because ABC Company is a member of the association that does hire a lobbyist.
