Senator John McCain's well-known former campaign manager Rick Davis, a leading star in the 2012 movie Game Change about McCain's 2008 election campaign, is co-owner with Manafort of Davis Manafort International.

...
The choice of Manafort came as no surprise to Vin Weber (see later) who said 'Paul has been involved in internal Republican politics for almost all of his adult life.
...
The Yanukovych presidency, probably with advice from Manafort, lobbied influential Republican policymakers and consultants.[39] Weber was awarded the Democracy Service Medal in recognition of his service as National Endowment for Democracy (NED) Chairman in 2001-2009 for his commitment to advancing the principles of democracy and human dignity.[40] Weber, who had acted as one of US presidential candidate Mitt Romney's top foreign-policy advisers in the 2011 elections, was a registered lobbyist for the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine funded by the Party of Regions.[41] As with McCain's relationship with Davis this represents a clear contradiction; Weber, after promoting democracy for the first decade of this century, became a lobbyist for a government that was dismantling the democratic achievements of the Orange revolution.

And now, we have a bit of drama about Rick Davis and the payments from Freddie Mac to his lobbying firm, Davis Manafort.

...
The McCain campaign, and Davis himself, tell the story that he severed his relationship with the firm in 2006. There may have been payments to the firm after that date (indeed, until the takeover), they say, but that is irrelevant as Davis is now a part of Davis Manafort in name only. So I was willing to buy that this had been kind of blown out of proportion...it looks bad, but other than Freddie paying money for work Davis was apparently not doing anymore, I didn't see a big problem other than appearances.
Then this evening I read a Newsweek article about the whole situation. I still don't think there really is anything untoward going on, but it feels an awful lot more like Davis and the McCain campaign blithely lied to the American public. That campaign has "misstated" aka lied to our faces about a lot of silly things this year, and I suppose this is just another case.
First the McCain version of events:
In its initial statements to reporters this week, the McCain campaign said that the disclosure of the payments from Freddie Mac was irrelevant because Davis, who was never a registered lobbyist for the troubled housing corporation, had severed his relationship with Davis Manafort in 2006, and was no longer drawing any income from it. Jill Hazelbaker, the campaign's communications director, said in an e-mail Tuesday that Davis "left" Davis Manafort in 2006.
...
In a statement attacking The New York Times, posted on the campaign's Web site on Wednesday, campaign spokesman Michael Goldfarb said that Davis "separated from his consulting firm, Davis Manafort, in 2006.
...
But those statements appear to have overstated the extent to which Davis had severed his relationship with his lobbying firm. Filings made by "Davis Manafort Partners" with the Virginia Corporation Commission as recently as April 1, 2008, show that Davis was still listed as one of only two corporate officers and directors of the firm, according to records on the commission's Web site reviewed by NEWSWEEK. That filing records Davis as the "treas/clerk" of the firm; his business partner, Paul Manafort is listed as the president and chief executive officer.
...
(with the same Alexandria, Va. address, and recorded on Oct. 17, 2007) also lists Davis as an officer and director of the firm, reporting his position as "T/Clerk," a reference to his formal title as corporate treasurer and clerk.
...
Do others think that Davis and the McCain campaign really lied about this?

"That is to say that, since he left, he in fact has not done any work for Davis Manafort or its clients, and he has not taken a salary or received compensation since 2006. Furthermore, he will not receive any deferred compensation."
Hazelbaker directed all other questions about the matter to Davis Manafort. (Among those questions she said she was not in a position to answer were: whether there was any documentation of Davis's changed relationship with his firm, and why Davis Manafort continued to bill and accept the consulting fees if Davis wasn't performing any work for Freddie Mac.) For the second day in a row, Davis Manafort did not return phone calls about the matter.
...
Davis himself, on a conference call with reporters on Monday, said that he "had a severed leave of absence from my firm for 18 months.
