McCain: 'Anti-Lobbyist' Who Works With Lobbyists ("virtually every one of his closest advisers" )
Advertisements [?]


The Washington Post has come out with another damning story on Senator John McCain, just two days after The New York Times alleged he was having an "inappropriate" relationship with a female lobbyist.

McCain's Closest Advisers Mostly Lobbyists:

For years, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has railed against lobbyists and the influence of "special interests" in Washington, touting on his campaign Web site his fight against "the 'revolving door' by which lawmakers and other influential officials leave their posts and become lobbyists for the special interests they have aided."

But when McCain huddled with his closest advisers at his rustic Arizona cabin last weekend to map out his presidential campaign, virtually every one was part of the Washington lobbying culture he has long decried. His campaign manager, Rick Davis, co-founded a lobbying firm whose clients have included Verizon and SBC Telecommunications. His chief political adviser, Charles R. Black Jr., is chairman of one of Washington's lobbying powerhouses, BKSH and Associates, which has represented AT&T, Alcoa, JPMorgan and U.S. Airways.
