Really - this isn't just a coincidence:
Top current advisers to Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign last year lobbied for a European plane maker that beat Boeing to a $35 billion Air Force tanker contract, taking sides in a bidding fight that McCain has tried to referee for more than five years.
Two of the advisers gave up their lobbying work when they joined McCain's campaign. A third, former Texas Rep. Tom Loeffler, lobbied for the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co. while serving as McCain's national finance chairman.
Last week I posted that McCain was a key figure behind the contracts going overseas, instead of to Boeing, which would have supported and created 44,000 new American jobs. Now will the media stop coddling their golden child and start investigating his ties to these lobbyists, and if those ties cost America 44,000 jobs?
