US presidential candidate Barack Obama's campaign this evening released a new video regarding John McCain's role in the savings-and-loan scandal of the late 1980s and early 1990s.

McCain was one of the so-called Keating Five. He was rebuked by a US Senate ethics panel for exercising undue influence on behalf of Charles Keating, a campaign contributor and chairman of Lincoln Savings-and-Loan. McCain was accused of pressuring regulators to go easy on Keating who had made large contributions to McCain and allowed the senator access to his private jet.
