As we noted yesterday in a post about Republican fundraisers, lobbyists who round up donors for political campaigns are the only bundlers required to report their activities.

Here’s a map of lobbyists who raise money for the two major Democratic PACs - the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Prime on the list are former U.S. Rep. Dick Gephardt, who heads Gephardt Group, and the Podestas. Heather Podesta of Heather Podesta + Partners raises money for both PACs, as does her husband, Anthony Podesta of Podesta Group.

He’s the brother of John Podesta, former chief of staff to Bill Clinton and co-chairman of the 2008 Obama-Biden transition team.
