Sweet Treats from AT&T

AT&T has made its list and checked it twice: Today the telecom giant sent out its annual cupcake deliveries to the Washington influentials with whom the group works during the year.

This year, as last, National Journal reporters received a dozen Georgetown cupcakes emblazoned with the AT&T logo.

No word yet on who else got a delivery, though two years ago the group spent almost $4,000 delivering 133 boxes of cupcakes to the FCC, which some took as a ploy to buy off their regulators. Last year, after facing some pressure to discontinue the tradition, Senior Vice President Bob Quinn defended the policy in a blog post.

"A cupcake is simply a small way of saying thank you for the patience, courtesy and professionalism that is shown our team throughout the year," Quinn wrote.
