Democrats Target 'McCain's Lobbyist Friends'
The Democratic National Committee has released a new Web-only video critical of the lobbying work of several of John McCain's campaign advisers. The video surfaces one day since the DNC revised its rules on campaign donations from lobbyists.
The video calls out McCain campaign adviser Charlie Black, campaign manager Rick Davis, GOP convention CEO Doug Goodyear, national co-chairman Tom Loeffler, and Randy Scheunemann, a McCain foreign policy adviser.
Obama's campaign prohibits paid staff members to be lobbyists, but it does allow volunteers to lobby the federal government. The volunteer policy created some headaches for Obama in Puerto Rico. The volunteer co-director of his campaign there is also a Washington-based federal lobbyist for the island's government.
