Backslaps and whispers do not leave any evidence unless the mic is open. This is why there is no damaging emails with Kaiser/WH/ Solyndra. These big donor deals are done in advance, one-on-one and leave no fingerprints.

Transparency by posting the "Ask Document" drafted by the lobbyist is the way hill staffers do business but will not stop back-channel deals. The only way to stop back channel deals is by following the money.
