Some Questions On McCain's FEC Report

The DNC just sent out an interesting memo after combing through the FEC report just filed by he McCain campaign. Some highlights:

McCain Victory Committee Not That Big?

The McCain Victory Committee, their joint fundraising operation with the RNC raised only $151,000 for the McCain campaign during April.

Shouldn’t They Have A Few More Offices Then This?

The report only shows rent paid for offices in the DC and NY areas: They have paid the Charles E. Smith Real Estate Services, LP rent for their DC area headquarters, and a small payment to C2 Group at 101 Constitutional Ave in DC. The only other rent payment is to Mosbacher Properties Inc, a New York City commercial real estate firm.

The McCain campaign paid almost another $41,000 for the use of his wife's corporate jet. They also received $177,000 in PAC money from energy companies and communications companies (who McCain is in oversight of on the commerce committee).
