More Evidence McCain is Now the Consummate Rovian Liar

Mr. "Reform Washington DC" McCain and his sidekick from Alaska reeking of ethical scandals must really believe no one is going to fact check them. Here we have McCain, indignantly crowing about how his campaign is free of influence of lobbyists associated with Freddy and Fannie meltdowns and how anyone is free to check their records, and, then someone does. Lo and behold! McCain was full of shit, again.

"Two reports tonight, one from the New York Times, and the other from Newsweek, contradict John McCain's statement this week that his campaign manager Rick Davis had no involvement with mortgage giant Freddie Mac for the last several years. The Times reports:

One of the giant mortgage companies at the heart of the credit crisis paid $15,000 a month to a firm owned by Senator John McCain's campaign manager from the end of 2005 through last month, according to two people with direct knowledge of the arrangement. The disclosure contradicts a statement Sunday night by Mr. McCain that the campaign manager, Rick Davis, had no involvement with the company for the last several years. Mr. Davis's firm received the payments from the company, Freddie Mac, until it was taken over by the government this month along with Fannie Mae, the other big mortgage lender whose deteriorating finances helped precipitate the cascading problems on Wall Street, the people said...

...On Sunday, in an interview with CNBC and The New York Times, Mr. McCain responded to a question about Mr. Davis's role in the advocacy group through 2005 by saying that his campaign manager "has had nothing to do with it since, and I'll be glad to have his record examined by anybody who wants to look at it.""

article from this link: Freddie Mac Paid McCain Campaign Manager's Firm Through last Month

Seems McCain's campaign manager's company was on the payola roll of both organizations until they went tits up. Jim

Was Phil Gramm whistling and rocking quietly in the corner hoping that no one would turn a camera his direction?

But hey, they are in it to win it. Screw ethics.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
