K & S has hit Senator Susan Collins and former House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi pretty hard over the years, on immigration issues. 

Searching the data at I found that in 2007 and 2008 King & Spalding, LLP – representing First Islamic Bank, n/k/a Arcaptia in the purchase of  Small Smiles Dental Centers from the DeRose family- also received $100,000 from Arcapita Bank lobbying on Medicare related issues.

Since 2007, King & Spalding has received $23,545,000 in lobbying fees.

King and Spalding, LLP was also a client for the lobbyist,  Venn Strategies, LLC in 2008.  Who knew, a Lobbyist needed a Lobbyist.
