The Obama campaign is going after McCain over a story in today’s New York Times reporting that McCain campaign manager Rick Davis took a staggering $30,000 a month for five years as the head of a group set up by Fannie and Freddie to defend them against stricter government regulations.

The Obama campaign’s broadside came in response to a McCain ad released this morning tying Obama to the Rezko mess. From Obama campaign spokesperson Bill Burton:

“It’s no coincidence that on the very day newspapers reported that John McCain’s campaign manager was paid $2 million to lobby against tighter regulation of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the McCain campaign would launch this false, gratuitous attack. Barack Obama was elected to the Illinois Senate as an independent Democrat. He took on the Chicago Democratic organization in a primary to win a seat in the US Senate. And in both Illinois and Washington, he has challenged the Old Guard for landmark ethics reforms.”
