Conventions accept millions in corporate donations

"John McCain, who wrote the law banning corporate donations to the political parties, and Barack Obama, who refuses lobbyist money, will be nominated for president at conventions largely funded by industries whose Washington clout they've railed against on the campaign trail." reports Bloomberg's Jonathan D. Salant. The corporate donations undermine both candidate's interest in curbing special-interests. The donations enable lobbyists to obtain credentials to attend the conventions and events, "allowing them to mingle with lawmakers acting on legislation important to them."
