Campaign Financing...Still

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Before we get to the topic at hand...if you haven't voted in our Presidential Forecast Contest, there's still time!

Now, what's wrong with this picture?

This is the money raised and spent by John McCain's campaign.

It looks a little high to me, even given the $84 million in Federal funds.

And it seems I'm not the only one with a question.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) plans to file a fundraising complaint Monday alleging that John McCain's campaign accepted contributions that exceeded the federal limits and took donations from anonymous backers.

Democrats say in the complaint to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) that Sen. McCain's (R-Ariz.) presidential campaign received 6,653 donations that each were at least $1,000 greater than the $2,300 donation limit. McCain also took 23 anonymous contributions that were greater than the $50 limit on donations from unnamed supporters, the complaint says. The complaint is based on records provided by the McCain campaign on its own website.
As usual, I'm shocked. Shocked I tell you...
