The Federal Election Commission has fined the 2008 presidential campaign of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., $80,000 for campaign finance violations.
The Commission reached a conciliation agreement with John McCain 2008 Inc., the McCain-Palin Compliance Fund Inc., and John Schmuckler, the treasurer of both.
The agreement states John McCain 2008 Inc. violated the law by accepting $377,657 in contributions that exceeded the limits of the Act; failed to report correctly the original dates on which $22,257,684 in contributions were received by its joint fundraising representatives; and failed to correctly report re-designations made to the compliance fund.
The McCain Compliance Fund Inc. failed to file 48-hour disclosure notices for 169 contributions totaling $240,700 that it received prior to the general election. The fund also failed to correctly report the original dates on which contributions were received by joint fundraising representatives.
Wow when they say the wheels of justice move slowly they are not kidding!
Though I have to admit that I am a little disappointed that this is the ONLY thing that the McCain/Palin campaign are being called on the carpet over.
Considering the lies that were shoved down the throats of the American people during that campaign John McCain should have been kicked out of the Senate and both of them run out of the country,.
Oh well I guess I will just have to settle for Sarah Palin becoming a political pariah and John McCain having to spend his twilight years in the Senate battling the Teabaggers that his protege helped to create.
