Obama Campaign Doesn't Want 'Lectures' From McCain Campaign

It’s officially now a spat between the Obama and McCain campaigns over the resignation of James Johnson.

Obama spokesman Bill Burton just came back with this statement in response to the McCain campaign’s latest comments:

“We don’t need any lectures from a campaign that waited fifteen months to purge the lobbyists from their staff, and only did so because they said it was a ‘perception problem.’ It’s too bad their campaign is still rife with lobbyist influence and doesn’t see a similar ‘perception problem’ with the man currently running their own vice presidential selection process, a prominent DC lobbyist whose firm has represented Exxon and a top Enron executive, or their campaign chair and John McCain’s top economic adviser Carly Fiorina, who presided over thousands of layoffs at Hewlett Packard while receiving a $21 million severance package and $650,000 in mortgage assistance.”
