Is Ehrlich a Lobbyist?

The Sun and the Post say no. Blogger Steve Lebowitz says yes. Let's be clear: your author would not have released the attack ad that the O'Malley campaign put out on Ehrlich, lobbying and oil because the evidence behind such charges, in our opinion, does not rise to an appropriate threshold of proof. In fact, O'Malley's people have committed a significant tactical error because they have shifted the focus away from Ehrlich and towards O'Malley's truthfulness, thereby hampering their future credibility. Still, the debate over Ehrlich's private sector activity is worth having because his campaign has released so little information about it.
