Obama to Attack McCain on Role in "Keating 5" Scandal, Despite Previous Statement it isn't "Germane"
On Monday the Obama campaign will start hitting Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., on his role in the late 80s/early 90s Keating 5 scandal, despite previous indications by Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill, made months ago, that the scandal was not "germane" to the presidency because McCain had apologized for his role.
Coming off two events -- Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin attacking Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., for his controversial associate William Ayers, and Wall Street's financial crisis -- the idea put forward by the Obama campaign is: ‘You want to discuss questionable associates, Sen. McCain? Let’s discuss questionable associates.’
