I think the word Lobbyist is the problem. To some of us, a lobbyist is connected with PACs rather than what we are likely really discussing.

Perhaps "Plants" would be a better word? Or Shills, perhaps.

Shills: "An accomplice of a hawker, gambler, or swindler who acts as an enthusiastic customer to entice or encourage others."
