Why doesn't JiSM just quit?
It seems like there's a stampede out of John McCain's presidential campaign as he tries desperately to demonstrate that an entire campaign composed of lobbyists doesn't mean that he, himself, is just a informal lobbyist who has been elected to the US Senate. According to the Washington Post,
Tom Loeffler, the national finance co-chair for Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign, resigned from the campaign today because of his lobbying ties, a campaign adviser said.Now, this is some fertile territory for research and someone seems already to be mining it very effectively. Let's see how many more of John McCain's top aides turn out to be mercenaries for the same large corporations that are already bleeding the US Treasury dry.
His is the fifth person to sever ties with the campaign amid a growing concern about whether lobbyists have too great an influence over McCain and the campaign. Last week, campaign manager Rick Davis issued a new policy that requires all campaign personnel to either resign or sever ties with lobbying firms or outside political groups. WaPost
