John McCain's campaign is seizing on Barack Obama’s comments Tuesday night deriding the public financing system for presidential campaigns. A senior McCain adviser calls it the latest signal that the Democratic candidate may abandon a promise to participate in the system, should he become the Democratic nominee.Well, that's about par for the course from the Repugs, I know.
And here’s a particularly outrageous misrepresentation from CNN’s Dana Bash…
Last week, McCain's campaign returned $3 million in funds received from major donors towards general election expenses, and encouraged them to send the money to the Republican National Committee's Victory Fund instead — one of the strongest signals to date he intends to participate in the public financing system, which prohibits him from receiving those donations from individuals who have already contributed the $2,300 primary season maximum.I have news for you, Dana, based on this; McCain already is participating in the public financing system!
Oh, and while you’re at it, try asking the Senator when he plans to release his tax returns, will you?
