McCain Solicits Russian campain cotribution Quote | Reply

The Russian mission issued a statement saying "we have received a letter from Senator John McCain with a request for a financial donation to his presidential election campaign. In this respect we have to reiterate that neither Russia's permanent mission to the United Nations, nor the Russian government or its officials finance political activities in foreign countries." It is illegal for an American political candidate to accept campaign contributions from a foreign government.

ever hear of a mass mailing? The first sentence uses the word "inadvertantly" yet you choose to post this up here like it's evidence of McCain doing something wrong/illegal. Can't you make a point without trying to distort the truth?

You guys all need to lighten up. I don't think the OP was intending that you take his post as a serious accusation that Sen McCain actually wants Russian campaign contributions.
