Straight Talk My Ass

Campaign Finance Version.

You may have read in the last week or so that McCain secured a loan for his primary campaign in which he pledged or didn't pledge (depending on the paragraph in the loan document) public financing as security.

In a letter to McCain this week, Federal Election Commission Chairman David Mason says the presidential candidate “can’t drop out of the primary election’s public financing system until he answers questions about a loan he obtained to kickstart his once faltering presidential campaign.”

By the way, this is exactly the kind of hypocritical and sanctomonious behavior on the part of McCain that pisses off his GOP Senate colleagues and is at the heart of his current problems.
