McCain’s lobbyists – the web of connections
What a gem this is…go to McCainsLobbyists.Com to see how the GOP candidate has no credibility when he declares he’s going to clean up Washington of those special interests. I guess he just means the ones not on his payroll.
Also worth noting…

- Frank Donatelli, the McCain campaign’s director at the RNC, has had 70 clients including PHARMA, Pfizer and Exxon Mobil.
- John Green, congressional liaison, has lobbied for at least 150 clients, including insurance industry trade groups, predatory lender Ameriquest, Chevron Texaco, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac.
