Why John McCain Should Not Be Trusted
In 1989, the Lincoln Savings and Loan Association of Irvine, Calif., collapsed. Charles H. Keating Jr., an American lawyer and banker was convicted of fraud in the ensuing Savings and Loan scandal.
Lincoln S&L had come under regulatory scrutiny in 1987, but four prominent, Democrat Senators, Dennis DeConcini, Alan Cranston, John Glenn, and Donald Riegle and one R.I.N.O., John McCain, all of whom had received $1.3 million (collective total) in campaign contributions from Keating., questioned the appropriateness of the investigation. These unsavory politicians became known as the "Keating Five."
The subsequent Lincoln failure is estimated to have cost the taxpayers over $2 billion (per FDIC). McCain owes taxpayers about $400 million for his participation (i.e. 1/5th) of the resulting S&L collapse. Details: The S&L Crisis: A Chrono-Bibliography
Sen. John S. McCain III of Arizona, is an opponent of tax cuts and proponent of the flawed McCain-Feingold (D) campaign finance "reform" that bashes the First Amendment. John McCain calls himself a Republican, but deports himself as Democrat. As an Independent, I and many others, consider this behavior deceptive, at best.
Exercise extreme caution in considering his candidacy for any national elected office.
