The campaigns of Barack Obama and John McCain are tussling over reports that McCain’s campaign manager’s lobbying firm had ties to mortgage giant Freddie Mac as recently as last month — just before it and Fannie Mae were taken over by the government.

McCain’s camp is attacking the messenger — the New York Times, and others, quoted anonymous sources who said that campaign manager Rick Davis’s firm was paid $15,000 a month from the end of 2005 through last month.

Its official blogger, Michael Goldfarb, accused the Times of another in a series of false attacks.

“Today the New York Times launched its latest attack on this campaign in its capacity as an Obama advocacy organization. Let us be clear about what this story alleges: The New York Times charges that McCain-Palin 2008 campaign manager Rick Davis was paid by Freddie Mac until last month, contrary to previous reporting, as well as statements by this campaign and by Mr. Davis himself.
