Bank Lobbyist Serves as Advisor to McCain on Mortgage Crisis Policy

Yet another lobbyist problem for McCain:

Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain’s national campaign general co-chair was being paid by a Swiss bank to lobby Congress about the U.S. mortgage crisis at the same time he was advising McCain about his economic policy, federal records show.

MSNBC

Olbermann reported on this story Tuesday night, noting that Gramm served "as a lobbyist dealing specifically with legislation regarding the mortgage crisis as recently as Dec. 31, 2007."
