*Petition* People to McCain: You are not above the law!Submitted by D4L on Sun, 07/20/2008 - 18:44
Sorry if this has been around already, I can't remember if I signed it or not myself ... think I did. Passing it along in case some of you missed it!!
The end of Mccains candidacy and Ron Pauls return?
Please sign the petition at the bottom to release Mccain's delegates
McCain has 2 problems with this issue.
1: If the FEC allows Mccain to withdraw from FED matching funds he will be revoked from
many delegates in states that he was able to be on the ballot without the required number
of signatures therefore he will lose any delegates for him in those states.
2: If the FEC doesn't release him from matching funds he will be capped at 50 million
dollars and will kill his run for president because he will not have the money to compete.
The problem is even more complicated than this.
McCain used the matching funds eligibility to avoid having to collect signatures to qualify
for ballot access in several states, including Ohio, Pennsylvania and Delaware. Those state
wins must be voided according to most experts on the issue. That means he does not have
the necessary delegates.
Ironic that it was his law (McCain-Feingold) that got him in this mess.
McCain broke the law...
Sign the petition to remove his delegates….
keep passing this out.
