Looks like the Dems weren't the only one's sucking at that teat. McCain stayed clear of the bribes, er, campaign donations, but then hired the lobbying firm's CEO.

From another source:


Excerpts from a 19-page document, "Freddie Mac Field Program State by State Summary Report," dated Dec. 12, 2005. It shows that Republican consulting firm Freddie Mac and Republican consulting firm DCI targeted 17 GOP senators in a campaign to build opposition to a tough regulatory bill. The campaign began shortly after the Senate Banking Committee sent the measure to the full Senate on July 28, 2005.

The senators were Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Christopher "Kit" Bond and Jim Talent of Missouri, Conrad Burns of Montana, Mike DeWine of Ohio, Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, Olympia Snowe of Maine, Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, George Allen of Virginia, Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, Mike Crapo of Idaho, Jim Bunning of Kentucky, Larry Craig of Idaho, John Ensign of Nevada, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, George Voinovich of Ohio and David Vitter of Louisiana.

btw its not on the web yet, only in the print editions, but the Republicans have reported who and how much was donated to their convention this year.
Yeah, you guessed. Freddie and Fannie were in for cool 250,000.
