Obama Highlights McCain's Keating 5 Scandal - Video

What's good for the goose is surely good for the gander, right Senator McCain?

Coming on the heels of McCain's nonsensical attacks on Obama for his fake "association" with William Ayers, the Obama campaign has decided to get topical and highlight McCain's shameful involvement in the Savings & Loan scandal of the 1990s that cost the American taxpayer over $150 billion for the bailout (sound familiar?).

McCain was reprimanded by the Senate for his "poor judgment" in using his political office to intervene on behalf of this friend, Charles Keating, CEO of the failing Lincoln Savings & Loan, who was later convicted on felony racketeering charges.

Seeking to highlight McCain's "association" corrupt backroom dealings on behalf of Charles Keating, for which McCain was formally reprimanded by a Senate ethics investigation, the Obama campaign has launched a new site at KeatingEconomics.com. The 13-minute documentary was posted at noon today -- see the video below.
