John McCain hires DeLay crony to run his campaign

How's this for integrity:
John McCain just hired the worst man in the world to run his campaign, Terry Nelson. Nelson was an unindicted co-conspirator in the TRMPAC scandal as a key point of contact between Tom Delay and the RNC. He was James Tobin's boss during the 2002 New Hampshire phone-jamming scandal, for which Tobin was convicted. He also worked at the head of opposition research for the NRCC this cycle, where robocalls from Republicans pretending to be Democrats were the norm all over the country. Nelson also produced the racist bimbo ad against Harold Ford.
This guy is pure Straight Talk Express meets campaign reform. It makes a lot of sense to put legislation through the Senate on public financing and campaign fraud, because that will put McCain on the defensive. He'll be stuck between the wingnut base which doesn't trust him on campaign finance reform, and his centrist chops.
And Terry Nelson will hang around his neck, as he should. This is a man who just breaks the law with impunity, and he's running the campaign of Saint McCain.
That's right, folks, St. John McCain just hired Tom DeLay's old buddy Terry Nelson. The same Nelson who helped DeLay funnel illegal corporate contributions through the Republican National Committee.

McCain's halo is looking awfully crooked these days.
