Despite Lazio's refusal to discuss his lobbying activities or release notes from JP Morgan meetings, the New York Times sheds light on Lazio's role overseeing the bank's lobbying operation. Government records show that Lazio lobbied against bills that would provide consumer protections from high interest rates, excessive fees and high-cost mortgages -- that were effectively killed.

The Supreme Court says JP Morgan can spend as much as it wants on campaign ads. Will the big bank let top lobbyist Rick Lazio’s campaign continue to sink? Or will they bail him out at the last minute?
Today, in a letter to JPMorgan Chase, Democrats urged the big bank to pledge not to fund an advertizing blitz or independent expenditure campaign on behalf of Lazio, its top lobbyist, this fall.

As Congress readies to pass a sweeping financial reform bill, Lazio still won't say whether he supports the much needed legislation.
Is the former Wall St. mouthpiece - who advocated financial deregulation over the past decade - scared that supporting Main St. will hurt his relationship with JPMorgan?
Yesterday, Rick Lazio's former House colleagues took a major step forward by passing much needed financial reform.
