C.A.I.R. IN D.C.

I'm quite puzzled! Why does C.A.I.R. have an office in D.C.? Isn't it strange that this is the only religion in america that has the privelege of getting private audience with our govt. leaders? I've never heard of the council of american-catholic relations with an office in D.C. that has a pipeline to our govt. all religions in America can freely sell their religious campaigns-freely- without govt. assistance or intervention. Why do i get the feeling this is a--cell! D.C. is the high rent district. where do these people, in the definite minority come up with the funds to underwrite the costs of this endeavor? If there was a council of American-CATHOLIC Relations in d.c., i would not be questioning this. Maybe it's time to get C.A.I.R. to open their financial books. For the relatively few muslims in our country, i find it surprising they have this kind of money, but more importantly why they get the privelege of having our gov. at their disposal. I could possibly be wrong about this and if so, would someone please inform me? Thanks!
