Angry Wolf:

Rep. Frank Wolf (R.-Va.), well known in Washington as a sharp, long-time critic of the PRC regime, fired off a letter to Akin Gump on July 13. The company had apparently made the mistake of sending Wolf a propaganda package on behalf of the Chinese firm?¢â??¬ ¦quot;a good indicator that whatever the PRC-controlled company is paying the lobbyists it may be too much.

?¢â??¬???I must say in all candor that I was shocked that the packet arrived courtesy of Akin Gump?¢â??¬ ¦quot;one of Washington?¢â??¬â??¢s most distinguished and reputable lobbying and law firms,?¢â??¬  wrote Wolf. ?¢â??¬????¢â??¬ ¦ [W]hen I noted that CNOOC was one of your newest clients, I immediately thought, ?¢â??¬??Is there no bright line to separate who the lobbyists in Washington will or will not represent??¢â??¬â??¢ ?¢â??¬ ¦ Ultimately, I question the appropriateness of an American firm?¢â??¬â??¢s advising and being on the payroll of the Chinese government.?¢â??¬ 
