McCain Camp Returning Laundered Money

McCain's fundraising just took another hit

John McCain's campaign says it is returning tens of thousands of dollars in contributions solicited by a foreign citizen.

The move follows the disclosure that the money was being raised by a Jordanian man who is a business partner of prominent Florida Republican Harry Sargeant III.

The McCain campaign says some of the people solicited by Mustafa Abu Naba'a had no intention of supporting McCain for president.

Campaign spokesman Brian Rogers says 'that just didn't sound right to us' so the money is being returned.

Kudos to the Washington Post and NY Times for producing actual journalism (aka looking into something beyond a spoon-fed press release) for a change.
