John McCain's campaign manager, Rick Davis, was on Fannie and Freddie's payroll. They paid him $15,000 a month. I don't know about you, but to me, that's real money.
Oh, it gets better. Much better.
What did he do for them?
That's right. He did nothing for them:
They said they did not recall Mr. Davis’s doing much substantive work for the company in return for the money, other than speak to a political action committee of high-ranking employees in October 2006 on the approaching midterm Congressional elections. They said Mr. Davis’s firm, Davis & Manafort, had been kept on the payroll because of Mr. Davis’s close ties to Mr. McCain, the Republican presidential nominee, who by 2006 was widely expected to run again for the White House.
John McCain, author of McCain-Feingold, was worried about the corrupting influence of money in politics. He thus limited my right to give more than $2,600, in total, to any candidate for office. Yet he's perfectly fine with Fannie and Freddie giving his campaign manager $15,000 a month.
What about his campaign manager? Freddie and Fannie admit they paid him simply because of his relationship with McCain.
If John McCain has any integrity, he will fire Rick Davis immediately.
The FBI should immediately investigate Davis. If he did nothing substantive for Fannie and Freddie, why would they pay him?
