"FEC Invetigates McCain, Maybe Forced to do Public Financing"


"But here's a more pragmatic problem: if McCain is forced to his pledge, he can't spend more than $54 million for the Republican primaries -- and he's almost approached that number! If McCain suddenly goes dark, it will help Huckabee. It probably won't be enough to give Huckabee the win given McCain big lead - but it will make it that much more difficult for McCain to connect with voters who may not see as much of him."

Its been a tough week for McCain:

-Not on ballot in Indiana due to signature screw-up
-Lobbyist allegations
-Forced to take FEC matching funds (a dose of his own medicine, hopefully)

Sadly, he may very well be let off the hook on all three accounts. Here's hoping he goes down in flames.
