McCain: "I work for you"...REALLY??

7 Top McCain Officials are or were lobbyists!

One: Campaign manager Rick Davis is a major telecommunications lobbyist.

Two: Senior foreign policy adviser Randy Scheunemann recently faced scrutiny over his foreign lobbying on behalf of the Republic of Georgia, which has been embroiled in a military conflict with Russia.

Three: Senior adviser Charlie Black was a foreign lobbyist for dictators in Zaire and Angola in the 1980s, fodder for the liberal group

Four: Frank Donatelli, the Republican National Committee's liaison to the McCain campaign, has had clients including Exxon Mobil.

Five: Economic adviser Nancy Pfotenhauer has lobbied for corporate giants like Koch Industries.

The final two lobbyists are McCain's congressional liaison, John Green, and national finance Co-chairman Wayne Berman. They both lobbied for Fannie Mae, the troubled mortgage giant.

In addition at least 169 lobbyists run McCain's campaign.

Let's chant all together C.A.M. - CHANGE MY ASS!
