McCain Campaign Decries "Gutter Politics"
Howard Kurtz reported this afternoon:
Sen. John McCain said today that he has "never done any favors for anybody -- lobbyist or special-interest group" as his presidential campaign rushed out a statement denouncing allegations that he did anything to benefit a specific Washington lobbyist as "gutter politics."
The Arizona Republican has hired a prominent criminal attorney, Robert Bennett, to deal with the matter. "What is being done to John McCain is an outrage," Bennett said in an interview this morning.
Bennett is preparing answers to written questions submitted by a team of New York Times reporters who have spent weeks investigating questions about the senator and the lobbyist; she has also retained a lawyer, according to a knowledgeable source who asked not to be identified because he was discussing legal matters.
