McCain's Lobbyists: Another One Bites The Dust

Pretty soon its gonna be just John McCain and a typewriter.

John McCain's national finance co-chairman has stepped down, becoming the latest adviser to leave the Republican's presidential campaign because of ties to lobbyists.

Former Texas Rep. Thomas G. Loeffler, one of McCain's key fundraisers, resigned after the campaign last week instructed staff to disclose all lobbying ties and to make certain they are no longer registered as lobbyists or foreign agents.

McCain's campaign on Sunday confirmed Loeffler's resignation.
