It would seem that as Obama has a problem with campaign workers lobbying for money to Hamas, McCain also has problems in his nest. From NewsWeek comes this tidbit...
the man chosen by John McCain's presidential campaign to run this summer's GOP convention--Arizonan Doug Goodyear--was causing some headaches within the ranks. The problem? Goodyear is CEO of DCI Group,... DCI was paid $348,000 in 2002 to represent Burma's military junta, leading "a PR campaign to burnish the junta's image, drafting releases praising Burma's efforts to curb the drug trade and denouncing 'falsehoods' by the Bush administration that the regime engaged in rape and other abuses."
Ironically enough, though, Goodyear defended his involvement with the brutal Burmese regime in Isikoff's original story. "It was our only foreign representation, it was for a short tenure, and it was six years ago,"
The second McCain aide in as many days has left the campaign over ties to a public relations firm that once represented the Burmese junta. Doug Davenport, one of McCain's 11 regional campaign managers, quit his post today, a McCain spokeswoman said in response to an inquiry. [Jill Hazelbaker] said Davenport quit this morning for the same reason that spurred McCain's hand-picked convention manager to resign yesterday: connections to the DCI Group.
the report also put immense pressure on Davenport, who had run DCI's lobbying practice before signing on with McCain last month to run Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Kentucky and West Virginia for McCain.
