Democratic Chairwoman Paid to Lobby Florida Democrats

I find this shockingly bizarre. How can this possibly be considered ethical?  (For interested Democrats, Al Cardenas is the former Chairman of the Florida Republican Party and a top fundraiser for George W. Bush.)

Karen Thurman, expected to easily win re-election as chairwoman of the Florida Democratic Party on Saturday, has reconfigured her strange-bedfellows partnership with Miami lawyer/lobbyist Al Cardenas.

Cardenas, the former chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, was paying Thurman $3,500 a month to help his law firm lobby the Democratic-controlled Congress on behalf of MIami-Dade County.
