    Swiftboating is an underhanded and dirty attack on an opponents reputation.

    The Lobbying Disclosure Act requires all lobbyists to be registered. Which means yes, their identities are known.

    1) False - "swiftboating" refers to a tactic used during the Kerry-Bush election in which Kerry was maligned for his actions in Vietnam when he was in charge of a "swiftboat".

    2) ? - All lobbying groups must be registered with the Federal government; however tax-exempt organizations need not provide their membership lists.
