McCain Scandal Involving Lobbyists Widens

John” Bush” McCain has obviously been doing his homework. He already is looking more and more like a third term Bush presidency should he win. Take a look at his shenanigans with the FCC on behalf of Broadcaster Lowell "Bud" Paxson. Paxson says he met with McCain several weeks before he the Arizona Senator wrote two letters to the FCC asking for quick approval of Paxson’s purchase of a Pittsburg TV station.

Paxson also said Vicki Iseman, the lobbyist connected with McCain in a growing scandal was also present. The McCain camp denies any meeting took place before writing the letters and using carefully crafted wording stated, “No representative of Paxson or Alcalde and Fay personally asked Senator McCain to send a letter to the FCC regarding this proceeding”.

In other words, they didn’t “ask” for him to send the letters in so many words. You do the math.
