McCain Campaign Manager…and Yanukovich
Posted by Moira Whelan

Most Democracy Arsenal readers will remember the Orange Revolution, and the dirty tricks played before and after by Viktor Yanukovich…including the belief that he was behind efforts to poison his opponent, Viktor Yuschenko.

This story by ABC indicates that some in the McCain camp are getting edgy about Rick Davis's past life:

The McCain campaign is strongly denying the paper's reporting that in 2005, a White House National Security Council staffer called John McCain's Senate office to complain that Rick Davis, at the time a GOP lobbyist, was "undercutting American policy on Ukraine" by ferrying a Kremlin-backed politician, Viktor Yanukovich, around Washington D.C., the paper reported.

My own anecdotal conversations with people who run in the Russia and Eastern Europe circles indicate that Rick Davis was a fixture and a well-known advocate for Yanukovich. What’s interesting was that Davis never filed under the Foreign Agents Registration Act that he did work for Yanukovich and today denied he ever did it.

This story is going to be one to watch.

Thank you for your sharing! I like i very much!

Yanukovych is a corrupt, unintelligent thug, and a puppet of the Kremlin siloviki (old KGB apparatchiks). Yanukovych was the candidate supported by the unpopular & corrupt outgoing president at the time (Leonid Kuchma), and nearly stole the Ukrainian presidential election by means of a scheme where the vote totals were altered by security people sitting in the president's office. So it's only appropriate that McCain would have ties to Yanukovych.

Measure out a good length of wire line or Links of London Letters, if the balls are larger, leather or cotton cord. Should be enough to wrap around your neck than 5 inches. If you are using wire, slide a bead embedded in one end and a part of clasp. Pass the cable through the securing of accounts, adjust, and then flatten the Links of London Sale with crimping pliers. Trim the tail of wire. String accounts. If you want a symmetrical pattern, start with the Links of London Pendants and add segments on each side. Add the second part of the hook or, if you are using a snap hook Should silver jewelry be plated? Silver coating can be done with rhodium, white gold, yellow gold and platinum, even. Another thing you should know when to buy silver Links of London online may no longer be done by hand or machine. Of course, pieces of handmade silver are priced much higher than machine-made counterparts because more value is placed on the works of human hands.
