Sweet: Campaign Feinancing Complaint Against McCain

Public Financing Advocacy Group Files FEC Complaint Against McCain
A group that supports public financing of campaigns filed a federal complaint against John McCain’s presidential campaign Monday, calling for an investigation into two financial transactions involving two top McCain aides.

The Federal Election Commission complaint by Campaign Money Watch, a group that has received financing from Democratic leaning donors, questions payments from former finance chair Tom Loeffler to campaign finance director Susan Nelson. It also questions the reduction of a debt to a Web services firm co-owned by McCain campaign manager Rick Davis.

“A campaign manager renegotiating a debt with a company he partly owns raises serious conflict of interest questions,” said David Donnelly, the director of Campaign Money Watch.

Donnelly also questioned whether Loeffler’s payments to Nelson amounted to an illegal subsidy to a campaign staffer. Loeffler is a lobbyist and former congressman and Nelson is a former associate of Loeffler’s lobbying firm. The campaign has said the payments, first reported by Newsweek, were for legitimate work and were legal.

Campaign spokesman Brian Rogers called the complaint “baseless.”
Could the spider be tangled in his own web? Yeah, it's just harassment by Democrats, but it's nice to see the Maverick shot at with his own ammo.
