John McCain has pledged that, if elected president, he would end the revolving-door practice of administration officials leaving office for lucrative lobbying jobs.

In an interview with Politico, the Republican senator from Arizona called lobbyists “birds of prey.” But, until recently, the revolving door in his Senate office has spun steadily.

At least 16 of McCain’s former Senate staffers have gone on to careers in the influence trade, according to an analysis of federal lobbying records. In many cases, they went to work for clients whose issues the staffers dealt with in the Senate.

“Actions speak louder than words,” Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics, said, explaining that the senator has opened himself up to charges of hypocrisy by putting himself out front on ethics issues.

Both McCain and his Democratic rival for the White House, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, are trying to be “more ethical than thou” on lobbying, Krumholz said. Source Article

It’s not the ones who troop off to K Street that worry me. It’s the ones that are working from K Street and running his campaign! A case in point is Charlie Black. Big time lobbyist; he’s working on the McSame campaign. He also used to work for a really stand up nice(NOT) guy by the name of Jesse Helms.

It’s no wonder the sleaze has started rolling out of the McSame campaign. Then there are the people who are lobbying for the country of Georgia, the nice man who engineered the mortgage crisis (not to mention the Enron debacle) Graham who is running his economics who is a lobbyist for RBS. I could go on and on.

McSame has even sunk so low as to hire the man responsible for the whispering campaign against him in 2000 that destroyed his political chances. The man who disrespected his child and his wife is now working on his campaign. Wonder how Cindy feels about that?
