WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. John McCain says the movement he led to reform how political campaigns are financed is dead.
McCain says the Supreme Court has spoken on the constitutionality of political contributions by corporations. The Arizona Republican had sought to regulate them with a landmark campaign finance law he wrote with Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis.

Thats good John, because the only ones who liked it and benefited were the dums.
When you sleep with dogs...
Long live the First Amendment!
“Sen. John McCain says the movement he led to reform how political campaigns are financed is dead.” Like John, it looks dead, bringing back the First Amendment, and further restoring the corporate person in contract law. Heck if we keep restoring contract law, soon we can restore the Constitution!
And a damn good thing too. It totally tilted the playing field toward the Unions, and THAT sort of SEIU dominance is NOT something this Nation can take again, it gave us Barack Obama, the lead puppet for the SEIU and ACORN.
Our goal should be no more progressives...Democrat or Republican.
It was a failure anyway. All it did was shift the balance of power to the unions and the Democrats. It did nothing to limit the amount of money or corruption.
If you want to do something about corruption in politics and get a handle on campaign contributions, do these two steps:
(1) Every candidate and party must publicly post donor names, city, state and amount. Failure to do so disqualifies the candidate from holding office.
(2) Pass a constitutional amendment prohibiting the federal government from allocating any money to the states or localities. If Congress cannot bring home the pork, contributions will dry up.
No kidding. When Bush failed to veto this McCain - Feingold POS legislation, he lost me totally.
If Juan didn't know it would benefit the way dems fund raise and hurt the GOP fund raising, he's an moron of the first degree
About g-d time!
And it's about damn time we rid ourselves of McCain too.
Campaign finance reform died when McCain accepted federal money and limits on his presidential campaign and his opponent went back on his word to do the same. Once again Republicans are missing the public relations game. They should have been on the talk shows this morning talking about Obama opting out of federal funding and raising an obscene amount of money. Instead, they are letting the Obama and the Democrats wail about big corporations.
We know Maverick. It’s been a wonderful week, hasn’t it?
So he admits his signature issue was unconstitutional. He needs to be tossed from the senate.
Please JD, RUN! McCain is already campaigning against JD in radio spots and JD has yet to announce his intentions. RUN JD, RUN!!!!!!
So is McCain’s campaign, now that his wife and daughter are out there supporting non-conservative values.
