GOP challenger calls on John Kerry to return donations...


BOSTON - Sen. John Kerry's GOP challenger is calling on him to return $111,000 he received in campaign contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac between 1989 and 2008.

Republican Jeff Beatty says the contributions show Kerry hasn't been tough enough on oversight of the mortgage giants. Financial mismanagement led the government to take over the companies on Sunday.

A Kerry spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Kerry was number two on the list of top lawmakers who received campaign donations from the companies according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Senate Banking Committee Chairman Chris Dodd, D-Conn. received the most, $133,900. Barack Obama, D.-Ill., came in third with $105,849.
Look who else is on the top of the list. Dodd and Obama! What a surprise!

is that Obama has many Mac and Mae insiders working for him.
If people were to really look at this situation, it could be worse then Enron.

But they won't look.
