This week, several credit card issuers testified before an unamused and largely uninformed collection of congresscritters. Mark Udall, Barney Frank, and others questioned Bank of America reps and other credit card issuers about outrageous fees, late fees, and unaccounted for increases in credit rates.
Republican John McCain said he worries that terrorists might try to influence the November general election with increased attacks in Iraq.
“Yes, I worry about it,” he said Friday, responding to a question at a town hall-style forum. “And I know they pay attention, because of the intercepts we have of their communications.”
Presidential candidate Barack Obama said Friday that he got more political money from indicted Chicago businessman Antoin “Tony” Rezko than he has previously acknowledged.
Rezko helped raise up to $250,000 for his various political races, Obama’s campaign said. The campaign had previously put the figure at $150,000 but now says that amount was only for his 2004 Senate race.
