The government of Libya, responding to protests in recent days with alarming violence, pays three prominent Washington lobby shops to improve relations with Congress and the White House.

Livingston Group, White & Case, and Blank Rome are all on record as representing the regime of Muammar Abu Minyar Al-Qadhafi.

Livingston Group also represents Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation, a charity headed by Qadhafi’s son.

Foreign agent records show that the firms collected more than $8 million in 2008 and 2009 for lobbying and legal services.

The Livingston Group, headed by former Louisian Congressman Robert Livingston, also represented Mubarak’s government in Egypt.
