McCheat Flips and Flops

The self described enemy of lobbyists and special interests defends his close relationship with them, including having several lobbyists as close campaign advisors.

Sen. John McCain said Friday that while lobbyists serve as close advisers to his presidential campaign, they are honorable and he is not influenced by corruption in the system.

McCain, who has styled himself as an enemy of special interests, defended having lobbyists working for his campaign. He is the expected Republican presidential nominee.

"These people have honorable records, and they're honorable people, and I'm proud to have them as part of my team," McCain told reporters following a town hall meeting in Indianapolis.

So, which is it McCheat?  Are you a friend to lobbyists or are you against special interests?  Because you cannot be both.

I, for one, await your response.
