Lobby… Where? California…? No way! NOT!

An investigation into allegations that Armstrong used performance-enhancing drugs was dropped earlier this year by Andre Birotte Jr., the US attorney for the central district of California. Birotte’s office offered little explanation for the move, which came as a surprise to many in the global cycling community. A spokesman for Birotte’s office, Bruce Riordan, said: "Our office declines to comment on the matter in question."
