McCain the Maverick? Not So Much

Candidate John McCain likes to present himself as a GOP maverick, an outsider who can buck the system when necessary. 

Too bad his campaign staff belies that idea. Here's what the Sacramento Bee found when it looked at McCain's ties to the telecommunication industry:
More than 60 present and former telecom lobbyists work for McCain's campaign as staffers and volunteers, some in high-echelon posts while on leave from their firms. 
Like George Bush before him, McCain's outsider status is a myth. In a McCain Administration, the telecom giants will get a seat at the White House.
