After a couple of spirited chats on finance reform here at gayconservative.org, I am happy to report that McCain gets first-hand experience of what happens when you “moderately” work with far-left nuts like Feingold.
In an article released tonight titled Democrats Seek FEC Probe of McCain, we see what happens years later after pandering to the left:
Thewants campaign finance regulators to investigate whether would violate money-in-politics laws by withdrawing from the primary election’s public finance system.
McCain, who had been entitled to $5.8 million in federal funds for the primary, has decided to bypass the system so he can avoid spending limits between now and the‘s national convention in September.
“poses as a reformer but seems to think reforms apply to everyone but him,” said Sunday
If McCain were prohibited from withdrawing from public financing, he would be severely limited in his campaign spending for the next six months. Under, he would be allowed to spend only $54 million; as of the end of January, his campaign had already spent nearly $50 million.
I’m still waiting to see the good side of “moderate.”
The bright side? At least McCain will have time to ponder this now before selecting his VP.
