John McCain is keeping $300,000 from this guy Clayton Williams:

So a guy makes a sick joke about rape that was highlighted in a campaign ad, but the McCain camp still thought it was perfectly fine to take his money and have a fundraiser with him until the press comes a knockin'.

ABC's Rick Klein reports: Sen. John McCain on Friday abruptly cancelled a Monday fundraiser that had been scheduled at the home of a Texas oilman, after ABC News contacted the campaign inquiring about a verbal blunder the Texan made during an unsuccessful 1990 campaign for governor.

Clayton Williams stirred controversy during his 1990 campaign for governor of Texas with a botched attempt at humor in which he compared rape to weather. Within earshot of a reporter, Williams said: “As long as it's inevitable, you might as well lie back and enjoy it.”

Again, McCain is willing to hold on to this guys money...

I guess the McCainiacs didn't do "A Google". Or, more likely, they did and they don't care.

Here's an idea: Tell John McCain to give back the $300,000 he raised via a man who jokes about rape.
