Matthew Mosk of the WashPo has it:
Sen. John McCain championed legislation that will let an Arizona rancher trade remote grassland and ponderosa pine forest here for acres of valuable federally owned property that is ready for development, a land swap that now stands to directly benefit one of his top presidential campaign fundraisers.
Taxpayer ripoff: check.
Environmental disaster: check.
Lobbying checks for McCain’s once-and-future staffers: check.
Benefits to McCain’s fundraisers: check.
Participation by Cindy McCain: since her tax returns are secret, how would anyone know?
Just another carefree day on the Straight Talk Express.
