While it may sound surprising that a former Democratic Party chairman would encourage corporations to donate to Republicans, Dean's advice makes sense considering his job as a paid consultant to the lobbying firm McKenna, Long & Aldridge. What's more troubling, however, is how Dean uses his powerful platform as a pundit and political leader without disclosing his work as an influence peddler.

In the media, Dean is typically portrayed as a former governor and liberal political leader. When, for example, Dean called for killing health reform in 2009, using arguments that simply didn't square with reality, he never disclosed that his lobbying firm was representing major health care interests that were impacted by the bill. Dean has also been linked to a lobbying effort to de-list the People's Mujahedin of Iran (MEK) as a State Department-recognized terrorist organization.
