Just when you think you’ve thrown the last lobbyist out, another one springs up like a weed in your garden. From MSNBC:
"Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain’s national campaign general co-chair was being paid by a Swiss bank to lobby Congress about the U.S. mortgage crisis at the same time he was advising McCain about his economic policy, federal records show."
I guess that is kind of "maverick-y" to cut out the middle man and just have a lobbyist create your policy? Oh yeah, the bank he was lobbying for was this one. I’m sure a lobbyist from a bank that is accused of helping billionares evade taxes is going to have the interests of working class families in mind, right?
