Skip to comments.Dems call for McCain investigation
Posted on 10/20/2010 6:15:09 PM PDT by rabscuttle385
National Democrats have asked the Federal Election Commission to investigate whether Arizona Sen. John McCain violated campaign finance laws when his campaign paid to run ads for Republican House candidates in Arizona charges the McCain campaign said are baseless.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee filed a FEC complaint Tuesday against McCain and his campaign committee, Friends of John McCain, because of recent ads backing Ruth McClung, the GOP nominee in Arizonas 7th District, and Jesse Kelly, who is running in the 8th District. The complaint also asks the FEC to investigate whether McClung, Kelly and their respective campaign committees were in violation of campaign finance laws.
The TV commercials for Kelly and McClung include the standard disclaimer required by McCains namesake landmark campaign finance legislation, paid for by Friends of John McCain, and feature McCain himself announcing, Im John McCain and I approve this message.
Yet if McCain is spending more than $4,800 on each ad the legal limit for a political contribution its likely hes breaking the campaign finance law, Democrats say in the complaint.

He certainly is a canidate for being Pe Tarted.......
Would be such a joke and rightfully so for this altruistic Semi-Republican/Democrat. I would actually love for him to be brought up on charges here as he and his idiotic supporters, NC come to mind. All of his ideas were not only anti-Constitutional, but insane as well! He and all that voted for this stupid legislation should be turned out to pasture.
I'm sensing a wee bout of Schadenfreude coming on. :-)
I’m sure the DemonRAT Demogogues are guilty of violations of that unconstitutional quagmire, and much more besides, but it is good to see someone who betrayed us by promoting it getting bitten by it in the end.
I’m sure that senor jon is SHOCKED that his GOOD FRIENDS on the other side would treat HIM this way.
It must be the TEA PARTY after him, surely the dems LOVE HIM, after all, he helped get obama elected.
“But,but, we have nothing to fear from an Obama Presidency!”
McLoser’s friends turn on him on a dime, and the irony is, foreign money from unidentified sources flowed into Obama’s campaigns like the Mississippi after a spring thunderstorm.
That right there’s funny, I don’t care who you are.
John, John, John ... don't you know that each time you reach across the aisle, you have to count the fingers on the hand that comes back? Do you get it yet?
I still blame McCain for obamas victory in 2008 he could have told everyone Obama was a socialist but no he thought Obama was a nice man. McCain sucks and I hope his daughter had something to do with the ads as well, a 2 for 1 throw em in the slammer is fine by me
Skip the investigation - just oust him.
The problem with this is, they aren’t after Juan. The commie ‘RATS have drawn a bead on Kelly and McClung. The bass turds are desperate and scared that Giffords, Mitchell and Raul the La Raza Guy are about to be thrown out on their collective arses. My question is, when is the GOP going to start making these kinds of allegations against the commie ‘RAT candidates? I’m not going to hold my breath. GOPers need to cowboy up and get with the program or they’re going to get killed in two weeks. The ‘RATS are already giving out FREE ice cream to anyone who will vote for them and it’s working.
hahaha that cracked me up
Let's count how many sympathetic comments McCain gets here, let me start off: Oh those Democrats are just so mean
