Mccain Forgets How Many Glass Houses He Lives In

John McCain's campaign today announced, "Americans need to ask themselves if they’ve ever befriended an unrepentant terrorist, or had a convicted felon help them buy their house."

Neither of these things is true of John McCain. However, McCain has befriended a convicted felon, and his many houses were purchased due to the fortune of convicted criminal Jim Helmsley, his father-in-law.
