No really traces the history of and what was in the news. The salient points about Keating are:

Senate said he exercised POOR JUDGMENT
He strongly advocated deregulation of the banking industry
He took much money from the bad guys
He acknowledged that his wife and father in law were investors who benefited but that since he and his wife had a pre nuptial agreement their finances were separate and he didn't benefit. That was how he got off the hook. Now talk about associations.
The other thing is how his father in law made his money and his known association with the Arizona mob. Those articles are from back then and from the Arizona papers.

I remember this entire scandal growing up in the 80s and anybody who votes for McCain after watching this is a partisan masochist! The man is corrupt beyond hell!

But he was found to have poor judgement regarding the issue. .. and it appears his ideas of deregulations haven't change.. hence he hasn't learned his lesson.

Did the video also show John Glenn being an adviser to Obama in Ohio, doing fund raising for him, stumping at rallies and speaking for Obama?

Guess not, people seem to forget that Obama was to stupid to even know that John Glenn was also a member of the Keating 5 but Obama kinda forgot that if you attack one of them you are attacking them all.

And John Glenn is a big time Obama supporter, fund raiser and adviser.

Do you "really" believe that Obama didn't know something like that?
