McCain's history with financial sector

In looking for something else the other day, I came across this article from the Arizona Republic. It's apparently part of a larger story about John McCain's biography, but this section deals with his involvement with the infamous Keating 5, a group of lawmakers who were in kahoots with multi-millionaire savings and loan shark Charles Keating.

While a few of them were indicted, McCain got away with a slap on the wrist.

But in light of the current crisis and McCain's utterly baffling flailing about on what he would do, perhaps this is the time to educate yourself on what the Keating 5 story was all about.

Though McCain has so far gotten a free-pass from the press about this chapter in his past, you'll likely hear about it from time to time. Why not actually know what they're talking about?

Read this straightforward factual account of the scandal and McCain's involvement.
