McCain: Another Rick Davis piece

The New York Times front-page article on Rick Davis: "One of the giant mortgage companies at the heart of the credit crisis paid $15,000 a month from the end of 2005 through last month to a firm owned by Senator John McCain's campaign manager, according to two people with direct knowledge of the arrangement. The disclosure undercuts a remark by Mr. McCain on Sunday night that the campaign manager, Rick Davis, had had no involvement with the company for the last several years."

"Mr. Davis's firm received the payments from the company, Freddie Mac, until it was taken over by the government this month along with Fannie Mae, the other big mortgage lender whose deteriorating finances helped precipitate the cascading problems on Wall Street, the two people said."

After tire gauges and styrofoam oil barrels, here's the latest... Democrats pile on McCain and Bermuda offering traveling press a "John McCain Bermuda Survival Kit: A Care Package From His Favorite Tax Haven," with a "A John McCain-Greetings from Bermuda Postcard," a John McCain-Greetings from Bermuda snow globe," a McRum cake, and a flash drive with a copy of the campaign ad hitting McCain on the subject.
