FactCheck: Reed Reality
« on: August 26, 2008, 06:36:03 AM »
Summary

An Obama ad in Georgia ties McCain to former Christian Coalition executive Ralph Reed and the Abramoff lobbying scandal. It doesn't give a full picture.

The ad says that Reed "is now raising money for McCain's campaign." But McCain has said, "I neither seek nor want his support."

It says McCain, as a committee chairman, "never even called Reed to testify" about Abramoff, which is true. But McCain's public report embarrassed Reed and damaged him politically nonetheless.
