Return of the Enron Lobbyists

Enron may have declared bankruptcy and emptied retirement plans right and left. But they still have enough money to send lobbyists back to Capitol Hill. Enron's looking for $500 million in fees from taxpayers and ratepayers. They're trying to force people in Washington state, California, and Nevada to pay for termination fees. The utilities fired Enron for their corrupted accounting, but Enron says that's no excuse -- they want their money. (CNN)
