Summary:

Nearly two years into the Obama Administration, a campaign pledge to create an integrated website for lobbying and ethics disclosures has not led to the creation of the promised site, Ethics.gov. The Hill used FOIA to obtain over 560 pages of emails showing senior White House aides seeking funding and meeting with watchdog groups; White House sources described the website as in "active development."
