The other lobbyist John McCain is in bed with besides Rupert Murdoch — Rick Renzi!

by Jayne Lyn Stahl

Renzi, the congressman who, back in 2006, McCain called "Arizona's workhorse," and said has "integrity beyond reproach" was indicted yesterday on 36 federal corruption charges.

Waiting for the other shoe to drop? Wondering if the yellow brick road will lead to another lobbyist — Jack Abramoff? Right around the same time McCain enthusiastically endorsed Renzi, Abramoff pled guilty to three counts of fraud, tax evasion, and conspiracy to bribe public officials. Well, there are bribes and there are bribes — some bribes are delivered under the table, and others come through black silk camisoles.

Overall, from what we've seen, an elephant does a much better job of covering its tracks than anyone the Bush folks would endorse. Yet, there are those who say corruption, like beauty, is in the eyes of the beholder. That anyone claiming to go after special interest should be found with some "special" interests of his own, and so easily, is alarming.

But, think about this. While I wouldn't suggest making book on it, should Senator McCain be forced back to the bottom of the heap, who will then lead the Republican ticket — Mike Huckabee. And, a quick visit to Huckabee's Web site will show which faction, in the Republican Party, would benefit most from a MCain fall, and why.

McCain hid facts that Abramoff and Scanlon funded Alabama's GOP to Smear Don Siegelman
Newhouse Publishers owned by the Newhouse brothers operating under the name of Advanced Publications, control the three largest newspapers in Alabama. They have kept the Extreme Left Wing GOP scandal hidden from Alabama Residents. Small locally owned newspapers and Harper's Magazine were the only ones investigating and reporting this story.

This Alabama scandal was orchestrated by Karl Rove who got experience from his mentor Donal Segretti in 1971 during Watergate. Segretti served prison time; however, Karl made statements about all those involved to the U.S. Attorney's and was only 21 years old he was released without have to serve time.

The Bush’s elite group of corrupt GOP’ers are scared to death that honest Don may be on the streets before the election. Especially after they used John McCain to cover up in his report how Jack Abramoff and Michael Scanlon Funded Millions of dollars to Riley's campaign money in exchange for Riley putting heavy restraints on the Alabama Poarch Indians and promising to eliminate Don Siegelman so that Mississippi gambling would continue to flourish.

The conspiracy involved having drummed up charges brought against Siegelman during his campaigns for reelection. By Bush making selected appointees into the Justice Department, the U.S. Attorneys cohering the witnesses. Then sending Siegelman straight to prison with no appeal process.

This week after 60 minutes aired and the presidential campaigns are causing candidates and their dealing to get investigated, the Extreme Left Wingers are scared to death. They say that slick Bob is combing his hair and spraying his mouth and under arms every five minutes hoping that John McCain won't confess to Riley being paid off by lobbyist who was investigated by Congressman McCain. If a Democrat is elected chances are that new U.S. attorneys will be appointed and several indictments will be issued to all those who took part in the conspiracy.
