Open Range Communications Lobbying

In reading the Washington Post on Wednesday afternoon we came across this interesting article “Democrats call for investigation into bankrupt Open Range federal loans” by Cecilia Kang.  Wondering if Open Range lobbied, we did a quick search of First Street and found the lobbying activity of the now defunct firm.  Like Solyndra, Open Range Communications spent a good amount of money lobbying.  Here’s a quick snapshot of their lobbying actvity since 2009 (their lobbying activity goes all the way back to 2006):
