Lies, Lobbyists, Campaign Stuck in Financial Limbo

It has just gotten much worse for McCain. Read the above link.

Howard Dean hammers it home. Dean email:
John McCain literally has a lobbyist for "corporate interests and foreign governments" working from the "Straight Talk Express."
He can deny the sex part, which he did poorly considering he had two months to prepare, but everything else about the supposed "straight-shooter" is going down the tubes.

Newsweek headlines the lie.

He has even accepted public financing he no longer wants for his campaign and has no way right now to rescind his decision to take the money his name is associated with. I will like to see how this plays out over the next few months. After attacking Washington lobbyists for years he now has to defend them. And a campaign co-chair just gets indicted.

Joshua - "There's no way of getting around the fact that McCain routinely, almost constantly, issues categorical denials that are demonstrably false. The very volume and clarity of the bogusness of so many of these statements might even be viewed as his best defense."

Bad news getting to McCain.
