He was heavily involved with former "super-lobbyist" Jack Abramoff. Although he later cooperated with federal investigators and was never found to have done anything illegal, Hayworth was the largest recipient of campaign money from the now-convicted Abramoff.Even more disquieting from a conservative philosophical point of view, Hayworth was supportive of the Bush era's big spending -- much more so than the fiscally prudent McCain.

Hayworth's support of Bush's big-government polices included voting for the No Child Left Behind Act; the paperwork- and red-tape-friendly (and business-unfriendly) Sarbanes-Oxley Act; the pork-laden 2005 highway bill that included the infamous "bridge to nowhere"; and, most expensive of all, a Medicare drug benefit that created more than $7 trillion in unfunded liabilities. What is more, his support for a monstrosity known as the 527 Reform Act, which was intended to close "loopholes" in McCain/Feingold, and which was arguably worse for conservatives than the original article.
So Hayworth opposed McCain/Feingold, but supported the 527 Reform Act. This is telling, because the Republican leadership supported the latter. Hayworth's backing of it, therefore, shows his willingness to bend to the will of his party's establishment. This is hardly the record of a bold and independent conservative.
Keating 5 JUAN.
But he doesn’t support cap and trade, not a small isuue.....
We know that McCain betrays conservatives at every step.
Hayworth might, but he might not.
It’s called playing the odds.
McCain MUST go.
I don’t care. It’s worth it just to get rid of Meghan.
Comrade: Pay Controls Commissariat
McNuts: Unconstitutional Limits on Free Speech
Okay. So now we know that both McCain AND Hayworth suck, what do we do now? Go with the ‘RAT? Yeah, that’s the ticket!
McCain Kennedy Comprehensive Citizenship Give Away to Latin America Bill
What do you want to bet that this has Juan’s fingerprints all over it?
McCain needs to be put out to pasture. Go JD Hayworth.
Oh and McCain is more conservative??? LMAO!
McCain is stooge at best. He wants Amnesty, taxes, believe in the phony environmental movement. HECK NO to McStooge!
Don’t forget everyone. Remember what he said about Obama during the election campaign. He said Obama was not a Socialist and we could trust him. McStooge also said to not use Obama’s middle name. Finally, McCain went after conservatives of his own party for running an anti Obama. I believe it was in North Carolina or Tennessee.
Besides, I am not looking for a conservative hero. Just a someone to fight on behalf of conservatism.
Oh and if you want to know how McCain really feels about politics, then just look at his BIG MOUTH daughter that can’t keep her Trap shut.
He’s gotta be better than McLame.
LMAO! Right.... Not EVEN that...
This is pure unadulterated bullsh*t
Meghan McCain is fine! More cushion for da pushin’!
