McCain Caught LYING - about his letters to the FCC
McCain lies about his letters to the FCC. A new piece in the Nation by public broadcasting activist Jerold M. Starr accuses Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) of lying about writing two controversial letters to the FCC in 1999 on behalf of campaign contributor Lowell Bud Paxson, regarding Paxsons quest to acquire a Pittsburgh television station. Starr writes:

I dont know whether Senator John McCain had sex with lobbyist Vickie Iseman, but I do know, first hand, that he broke the rules while doing the bidding of media mogul Lowell Bud Paxson, a major contributor to McCains 2000 presidential campaign. McCains staff lied it about it then and they are inventing new lies even now.

.....................

At the time, McCains staff said to the press that his intervention was appropriate because there was no formal opposition. Our opposition had been formal for years.

....................

Allegedly, we asked McCains staff to contact the FCC regarding this proceeding. We had no idea of McCains sudden and urgent interest in our local matter until the FCC advised that the commissioners already had voted 3-2 to approve the transfer, at which time McCains letters were dropped on us.

1. There's the meme that McCain's in the catbird seat now with his
nomination all but certain, but I'm not buying it.

If he's in the catbird seat there are pumas prowling the grounds. It won't take them long to her his chirpping.

2. That's the story of McCain's life. He's been caught lying in the past, he will
continue to be caught lying in the future. He's like a petulant, petty, semi-ignorant, arrogant kid, He'll lie about everything and then throw a tantrum when he's caught.

The party of Abraham Lincoln has turned into something so corrupt and disgusting that there really are not words to adequately describe it.
