Members of Congress face many temptations, such as special interests who want to take them on free trips golfing or fishing, to Bermuda or Wimbledon. But voters are demanding reform. In this podcast, we look at how the perks lawmakers enjoy make it tough to clean up government. And what happens when newcomers try to play the lobbying game. Produced by Sasha Aslanian, Jill Barshay and Chris Farrell from American Radioworks.
