John McCain and Pitard Hoisting Or Just Dem Shenanigans

Special interest lawyers for the Democrat Party are filing suit against John McCain. They say Johnny Mac's in violation of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, aka McCain-Feingold Act. "We believe he's breaking the law every day," said DNC Executive Director Tom McMahon. Oh, the irony!

The Democratic National Committee announced today it will file a lawsuit in U.S. District Court Monday to force Sen. John McCain to stay in the public financing system until he formally accepts the Republican presidential nomination in September.

The lawsuit asks the Court to compel the FEC to conduct an investigation into McCain's decision to unilaterally withdraw from the public financing system, and, should the FEC continue to fail to do so, to allow the DNC to sue McCain directly for disobeying campaign finance laws
McCain's lawyers say, Nuh-uh! They further claim, writes the Washington Post, that "public financing is voluntary, and McCain had every right to withdraw from the system when it became clear the campaign wouldn't need federal matching money.".
