Morning Poll: Are You Over the Whole J.D. Hayworth/Jack Abramoff Thing Yet?
Yesterday, disgraced, former Washington D.C. lobbyist Jack Abramoff was released from the Maryland prison he's called home since 2006.
Simultaneously, Senator John McCain and his opponent in the GOP Senate primary, J.D. Hayworth, are bickering over which of the two is more of a lobbyist.
As you're probably aware -- and if you're not, just ask the McCain campaign -- Hayworth has a bit of a checkered past when it comes to his ties to Abramoff, which have been highlighted over the course of this campaign.
Hayworth's political ideology on a lot of things may suck and he says a lot of incredibly stupid stuff. Exhibit A. Exhibit B. Exhibit C. The fact is, though, Hayworth was never charged with a crime because of his ties to Abramoff.
