Another Reason McCain Should be put out of our misery

September 11, 2005
McCain Breaks McCain-Feingold Law
We emailed a similar version of this to our members last week:
As they say, ignorance of the law is no excuse. Especially if you wrote the law.
Last week Sen. John McCain cut a TV ad endorsing a candidate in the CA-48 special election.
As reported by the Orange County Register, “One thing the first airings of the ad did not include: [House Candidate Marilyn] Brewer does not state that she approved the ad. That’s now required by law. Specifically, the law co-sponsored by McCain himself.”
And recently PoliticalMoneyLine reported that “Talk of 2008 - Sen. John McCain’s Straight Talk America” registered again as a federal PAC…The phone number on their form is also listed as the fax number on the website of the Reform Institute, a 501c3 organization supporting McCain’s goals.” The IRS has a strict prohibition against 501c3 organizations conducting political activity.
We’re waiting for the so-called reformers to file a complaint…or McCain to turn himself in.Posted by Andrew Roth at September 11, 2005 12:04 PM TrackBack Print
