McSame Aides Lobbied for Predatory Mortgage Co.

Think Progress picks up on a story in the New York Daily News about two of Sen. McSame's closest advisors, John Green and Wayne Berman, who were recently lobbyists for now-defunct Ameriquest, the predatory home mortgage lender that had to pay some $325 million to states after being successfully sued over their lending practices. Over 13,000 homeowners in New York state alone were victims of the company.

Straight Talk McSame has said he's not going to "play politics" with the unfolding home foreclosure disaster; now we know why. Collar getting a little tight?
