Lobbying for Lobbyists

Yesterday we learned all about Randy Scheunemann, John McCain's chief foreign policy advisor, lobbyist and witness to McCain's bizarre jet-skiing adventures with the President of Georgia whose name he can't currently remember.

Well, surprise! It turns out Scheunemann was hired by Jack Abramoff's lobbying firm Greenberg Traurig after old Jacko plead guilty to fraud. Oh and Scheunemann was advising Greenberg Traurig while John McCain (who Scheunemann worked for in 2000) was supposed to be investigating the lobbying firm. No conflict of interest there. NOPE. NONE. AT. ALL.
