Five McCain campaign staffers and volunteers have now been shown the door over their lobbying activities and/or status as foreign agents. WaPo reports on the latest:
Tom Loeffler, the national finance co-chairman for Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign, resigned yesterday because of his lobbying ties, a campaign adviser said.
He is the fifth person to sever ties with the campaign amid a growing concern over whether lobbyists have too great an influence over the Republican nominee. Last week, campaign manager Rick Davis issued a new policy that requires all campaign personnel to either resign or sever ties with lobbying firms or outside political groups.
“The campaign over the last week or so obviously had a perception problem with regards with this whole business of lobbyists and their work,” spokesman Brian Rogers said. “This is really all about setting a policy so that we can just get through that perception problem and the issues that come up with regards to lobbyists affiliated with the campaign and move on.”
A left-wing outfit has a few more top McCain aides on its hit list.
But not a word from either the MSM or the lefties about McCain Hispanic outreach advisor Juan Hernandez, the former Mexican cabinet official who lobbied aggressively for illegal alien rights and benefits in the US on behalf of a foreign government. He still serves as a fellow at the conflict-of-interest-clouded Reform Institute funded with money from George Soros while continuing to advance Mexico’s open-borders agenda and drumming up campaign cash for McCain, most recently, as I reported earlier this month, for Cinco de Mayo.
So: What about Juan?
