McCain's Lobbyist Pals Forced to Jump Ship

Conflict-of-interest charges are causing problems for Sen. John McCain's presidential bid.

That's right, Sooner fans, ole Straight Talk John has found ethical problems in his own campaign staff because several top McCain staffers have ties to foreign governments.

News organizations reported today that McCain's top foreign policy adviser has lobbied the senator's staff on behalf of the republic of Georgia while he was working for the campaign.

Five—count 'em, five—McCain advisers have left the campaign recently because of conflict-of-interest problems.

All of this supports the notion that the Arizona senator has a blind spot when it comes to good ole boy cronyism.
