Dems Begin Throwing Mud At John McCain

Hypocrisy is alive and well on the left, especially in the Democratic Party. Rather than debate the issues, a debate they know they will lose, the Dems have decided early to engage in the politics of personal destruction against Senator John McCain. From TownHall.com:

The national Democratic party wants campaign finance regulators to investigate whether Sen. John McCain 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 GOP's national convention in September.

Federal Election Commission Chairman David Mason notified McCain last week that he can only withdraw from public financing if he answers questions about a campaign loan and obtains approval from four members of the six-member commission. Such approval is doubtful in the short term because the commission has four vacancies and cannot convene a quorum.

Apparently the Dems missed that last little point. How can Senator McCain get approval from four if only two are seated? Talk about a catch-22!


"John McCain poses as a reformer but seems to think reforms apply to everyone but him," Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Sunday.


McCain's lawyer, former FEC Chairman Trevor Potter, has said McCain did not encumber any money that he would have received from the federal treasury.

McCain and Potter have said he was entitled to withdraw without FEC approval and have cited as examples Dean and Democrat Dick Gephardt, both of whom withdrew from public financing during the 2004 presidential primary.

"Howard Dean's hypocrisy is breathtaking, given that in 2003 he withdrew from the matching funds system in exactly the same way John McCain is doing today," McCain spokesman Brian Rogers said Sunday.

Just goes to show that people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

First the New York Times publishes unverifiable allegations from anonymous sources and now the Dems go and pull a hypocritical stunt like this.

I am appalled at the conduct of the DNC but not surprised. Manufactured scandals take attention away from the real issues and that ultimately helps the Dems.
