Here's a new report from Politico:
The McCains increased their budget for household employees from $184,000 in 2006 to $273,000 in 2007, according to John McCain's tax returns.Spending more than a quarter million on servants in a single year raises this question: Does John McCain understand the lives of Joe and Lucy Sixpack right here in T-Town?
The additional cash supports an "increase in the number of employees," the McCain aide told Politico. The aide did not answer a question about whether the growing staff stemmed from addition of new properties to the family's real estate portfolio.
Based on his deluxe lifestyle, we rather doubt it.
