Just when you thought John McCain couldn't get more corrupt...

From McCain Keating Five:

While many Americans are scrambling trying to line up refinancing mortgage to stay in their homes, John McCain is busy taking campaign donations from the law firm of convicted felon Charles Keating, one of the masterminds of the Savings and Loan Scandal of the 1980’s that cost taxpayers $500 billion. Keating was convicted on over 70 felonies while running the Lincoln Savings and Loan. John McCain played a major part in the scandal, and 20 years later, he still doesn’t have the common sense to realize he did anything wrong and is still benefiting financially from his relationship with Keating.

OpenSecrets.org reports, “In amounts ranging from $200 to $2,300, about 30 partners and employees of the legal firm Keating, Muething and Klekamp, as well as their family members, have contributed $50,200 to McCain’s 2008 campaign.”

The country is in a recession, and McCain keeps taking donations from criminals who almost cost McCain his cushy job in the Senate 20 years ago.

The corporate media keep censoring the story about "Keating Five" McCain's enormous corruption, just as they downplay the stories about Sarah Palin's corruption. Many corporate noise machines even present these two sleazebags as "reformers." It's getting Orwellian.

If this wasn't repugnant enough on its face, there is evidence that bundling was involved, a way of increasing that law firm's impact. More from OpenSecrets.org:
In amounts ranging from $200 to $2,300, about 30 partners and employees of the legal firm Keating, Muething and Klekamp, as well as their family members, have contributed $50,200 to McCain's 2008 campaign. All but two of the contributions came in July, and all but three of those July donations were logged on July 31, suggesting they were delivered at the same time. As with any bundle of campaign contributions, it's difficult to determine which donor was the "bundler," the person who solicited the contributions on the campaign's behalf. McCain's online roster of bundlers, which purports to name any individual bundling $50,000 or more for the campaign, does not associate any of McCain's major fundraisers with the Keating firm.

I wonder how many other embarrassing bundlers are missing from the list, which is generated by the "Keating Five" McCain campaign. The level of dishonesty from these people is sickening.

Interestingly enough, the list of bundlers just has names. It doesn't say who these people work for.

If John McCain had even the slightest amount of integrity, he would return this dirty money and apologize.

    key bit:

    "If the John McCain of 2000 saw today's counterpart, he wouldn't recognize himself," the Board wrote. "McCain is no longer a GOP maverick, or the war hero whose principles were unwavering. He has flip-flopped on issues ranging from tax cuts to torture in an effort to win over the conservative base of his party. He has waged a dismal campaign based on fear and divisiveness."

  6. I got into an argument with some "Democrats for McCain," and when I mentioned the Keating Five, one of them actually said, "Well, he was acquitted from all that," as if money doesn't talk in Washington, and then they brought up Bill Ayers, as if THAT was a real issue. What a joke.
