McCain's Flip-Flop On Off-Shore Drilling A Week After Hess Fundraiser

The first three sentences say it all...

On June 10, John B. Hess, a top executive at the oil company with his family name, summoned friends to the 21 Club, a former speakeasy in Manhattan, and delivered $285,000 to John McCain and the Republican National Committee.

A week later, McCain traveled to Texas and announced his support for offshore oil drilling.

Hess Corp. is an East Coast gasoline retailer with major refining and exploration operations, some of which happen to be offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.

What a whore. Or is that giving the hard-working women of the street a bad name?
