I think we all know that Sen. McCain is doing his best to fit in with DC’s Republican establishment at the moment. But who knew how far he’d go?
Yesterday the Post reported that McCain had hired GOP operative Terry Nelson to be his new ‘senior advisor.’
Now, today over at TPMmuckraker.com, Paul Kiel managed to dig up the fact — actually, facts — that Nelson is not only implicated in the money-laundering scheme that Tom DeLay is currently awaiting trial for down in Texas. He’s also tied to the 2002 New Hampshire phone-jamming scandal. He was the immediate superior of James Tobin, the RNC guy who put the operation together. And his name was on the government’s witness list at the trial.
The guy really gets around.
Anyway, the beltway media doesn’t like anyone better than John McCain. So I’m wondering if this gets noticed.
