McCain, Part 3

I've seen some articles on McCain recently that are not too flattering:



US News And World Report


The Arizona Republic

You would think that there would be laws in the Constitution stating staff members of elected officials cannot work as lobbyists. It breaches conflict of interest rules, to say the least.

At least I now know why McCain's staff had no interest in pursuing a better plan for FEMA - mine or other plans people have to fix that train wreck - their staff members are either too busy getting paid by their lobbying sponsors for other work to be done, or perhaps they were (presumably) getting lobbied directly by those profiting from the mess FEMA made.

Either way, the survivors of Hurricane Katrina were the ones who lost the most.

I wonder how many of the survivors have lost the homes they are getting back as a result of the sub-prime mortgage mess?
