"This is hardly subtle. Sinister images of two black men, followed by one of a vulnerable-looking elderly white woman."
The McCain source for this attack ad linking Frank Raines to Obama is the Washington Post. The Post debunks the ad as wild exaggeration. (LIE)
Washington Post fact check on McCain Attack Ad:
The McCain campaign is clearly exaggerating wildly in attempting to depict Franklin Raines as a close adviser to Obama on "housing and mortgage policy." If we are to believe Raines, he did have a couple of telephone conversations with someone in the Obama campaign. But that hardly makes him an adviser to the candidate himself--and certainly not in the way depicted in the McCain video release.
McCain is a fallen hero who has lost all integrity.
