    More Headaches for McCain’s Camp

    For weeks now, John McCain's presidential campaign has faced awkward questions about the outside activities of several top advisers. Add one more name to the list: former Texas senator Phil Gramm, McCain's longtime friend and one of his five campaign co-chairs. (A sixth, former congressman Tom Loeffler, quit recently after NEWSWEEK reported on his lobbying work for Saudi Arabia.) According to McCain spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker, the co-chair position affords Gramm "broad input into the structure, financing and conduct of the campaign." She added that Gramm, who has a doctorate in economics, is also "a valued voice on economic policy." Gramm is not a paid McCain adviser, but his day job—vice chairman of a U.S. division of Zurich-based financial giant UBS—could pose new tests for a candidate who has promised high ethics standards and ditched advisers who failed to meet them.

    Heh. It's almost like the unconstitutional legislation he put his name to, has come back to bite him.

    By the way, Bro. Curtis, best wishes in the GOP primary tomorrow. Bring it home for Ron Paul! :thumbs:

    "one of his five campaign co-chairs"

    That says it all.

    Thank you, very much. I'm hitting the Higgins St bridge with my sign, until my shift is over, at 10:00 AM, then going to cast my vote for Ron Paul.

    I would love to see Ron Paul win a state. It is time for a limited government candidate to win a GOP primary.

    Gramm has a brilliant mind and is a great conservative addition to McCain's campaign advisors.

    At least he doesn't have to explain why he supports a man that advocates murder (withholding medical care so that a child will die) like Obama.
