The New York Times is reporting on fundraising by the McCain allied “Reform Institute”.
“It’s screaming hypocrisy, isn’t it?” said Roy Schotland, a professor at the Georgetown University Law Center and a critic of Mr. McCain’s campaign finance legislation. “What he’s doing is what he and his side are always screaming about, violating at least the spirit of the campaign finance laws.”
McCain has never been a real reformer, but a grandstander. And any thought that he has any integrity when it comes to this issue is just out of touch with the man’s own history as part of the Keating Five. Hypocrite on campaign financing? Yes, but this is far from the first evidence.
