Clay Jackson was once the most powerful lobbyist in Sacramento, representing the insurance industry and overseeing hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations to politicians. His firm billed $2 million annually. But Jackson wound up caught in the FBI’s undercover investigation of the state Capitol and he — along with 11 others — wound up going to federal prison.
