Phoenix, AZ (JUNE 8) - "This is fun with partial facts day in McCain world," said Mark Sanders, spokesman for U.S. Senate Candidate J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ), in response to the latest attack ad by John McCain.
"Remember he began his career in Washington as a lobbyist when he was appointed in 1976 as the Navy's liaison to the United States Senate.
"Talk about the pot calling the kettle black - and I don't mean Charlie Black or Rick Davis or Mark Buse who are or were high paid lobbyists now running the McCain campaign.
"Congressman Hayworth was contacted by a hometown friend regarding a Treasury Department regulation matter in early 2008 and he registered with the House and the Senate for this particular matter and this matter only.
"For 28 years, McCain has been the consummate Washington insider and this is just another effort on his part to remake himself during this campaign by spinning half-truths and flip-flopping on important issues."
