Report: Toyota hires D.C.'s Glover Park Group lobbyists

Politico's Mike Allen is reporting that embattled Japanese auto giant Toyota has hired Democratic D.C. lobbyists/PR firm the Glover Park Group to plead its case in Washington.

The Glover Park Group includes former Democratic heavyweights Joe Lockhart (former Clinton spokesman) and former Gore chief of staff Michael Feldman.

Citing Senate records, Politico reports that Toyota spent $4.1 million lobbying Congress last year, twice as much as any Japanese automaker. Which was still half as much as GM spent lobbying Congress last year.
