Sign the FEC Complaint Against John McCain

John McCain signed up for public financing for his campaign in August of 2007. In October of 2007 the McCain campaign got a $4,000,000 line of credit. He pledged the matching funds as collateral.

Then in January he wrote to the FEC stating he was opting out of the public finance system. But you can't do that after you've pledged your public funds to get a loan. In essence, McCain is claiming that the rules don't apply to him. But once he used the promise of public financing to get that loan, he was committed to following the rules.

He's violating the rules of the campaign finance system; the very one he's been claiming to reform for years.

You can sign on to the complaint filed with the Federal Elections Commission here:
