Ashley Zais, Miss South Carolina, Hired By The McCain Campaign

Jonathan Martin over at Politico says he's gotten word from a "colleague" that McCain has hired beauty queen Ashley Zais, to be in charge of his interns. Martin wants everyone to make sure that Ashley Zais should not be confused with Miss Teen South Carolina, who is now a YouTube star for completely messing up an answer during the Miss Teen USA contest last August.

More about Ashley Zais from Politico:

Ashley Zais, a recent Wofford grad, will serve as McCain's intern coordinator at the campaign's headquarters.

She met McCain last year when the senator gave a speech at South Carolina's Newberry College, where her father is president. Mitchell Zais, a retired Army general, and McCain became friendly after Zais published a piece in 2006 critical of how Rumsfeld's Pentagon had handled the war.
