PLAYERS: Lance Armstrong
The foundation created by seven-time Tour de France cycling champion Lance Armstrong has mounted a lobbying campaign on Capitol Hill in an effort to counter accusations by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that Armstrong took performance-enhancing drugs throughout much of his career. The office of Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison says the senator met in June with the Lance Armstrong Foundation's CEO and its chief lobbyist to discuss domestic and international cancer care as well as the possible consequences to the foundation from the proceeding against Armstrong. In addition to the meeting with Hutchison, a Washington lobbyist representing the foundation spoke last week with the staff of Congressman Jose Serrano about the USADA and its pending allegations against Armstrong.
