McCain out of money...


Recommended Posts

I would put this in the other Mccain thread but I keep on getting a Gateway timeout for the past six hours so I have no idea what's going on so I'll just post it here


CNN has learned the already-dire situation for Sen. John McCain?s presidential campaign has actually gotten even worse, with two sources close to the candidate saying the campaign only has a paltry $250,000 left.


The sources tell CNN that next week the McCain campaign will reveal it has about $1.75 million in unpaid debts, wiping out the $2 million in cash-on-hand the campaign currently has in the bank.


It was not immediately clear whether the campaign debt must be repaid immediately or whether the debt can be paid back over time, including after the presidential campaign ends.


Even though McCain has raised just over $11 million overall in the last three months, his campaign has spent large sums of money, one of the primary reasons for the departure earlier this week of his top two strategists, Terry Nelson and John Weaver.


A McCain spokesman had no comment on the latest financial troubles, which will spark a new round of speculation about the candidate?s viability. Campaign officials are expected to release details about campaign?s financial situation early next week.


Also if that's not bad enough...


his florida chairman was out looking for hookers


CNN) - A day after four of Sen. John McCain?s top political strategists stepped down, the Arizona Republican?s presidential campaign was dealt another setback when the co-chairman of his Florida campaign was arrested Wednesday for allegedly offering an undercover police officer money for a sex act, Titusville police said.


Florida State Rep. Bob Allen faces charges of solicitation for prostitution after he was arrested in a Titusville city park that had been under surveillance, police said.


He allegedly offered an undercover police officer $20 for the unspecified act.


Allen told CNN affiliate WFTV the incident was ?a very big misunderstanding.?


?This is a very gross mistake, a very big mistake,? he said, adding that this is what the judicial system is for.


Allen said he helped build the park, and was there looking around.


There was no initial comment from the McCain campaign.


In March, the McCain campaign issued a news release on its Florida leadership team, saying, ?Allen will serve as a House co-chair for Senator McCain?s campaign.?


Allen was elected to the Florida House in 2000.


His arrest comes a day after McCain?s campaign manager Terry Nelson and chief strategist John Weaver announced their departures in joint statements released by the campaign.


Earlier this week, U.S. Senator David Vitter, the southern regional chairman for Rudy Giuliani?s presidential campaign, was linked to the so-called DC Madam?s escort service.


Vitter, a Louisiana Republican, said in a statement, ?This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible. Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and from my wife in confession and marriage counseling.?


It was the second blow for Giuliani?s campaign. Last month, South Carolina Treasurer Thomas Ravenel, the state chairman for Giuliani?s campaign, was indicted on federal cocaine charges.

McCain blew the wod that fast and he was supposed to be a fiscal conservative.


There's an old saying starting with Jesus, "You shall know them by their fruits."


The other campaigns are blowing threw millions and losing ground while Ron Paul spent practically nothing and he's growing.


I guess the guy who knows how to be fiscally conservative in his campaign would also be fiscally conservative in reality.



I wonder what's going to happen to Giulliani, the gangster himself, after NYFD-gate:

McCain faced more staff resignations Monday.

WASHINGTON (CNN) ? Sen. John McCain?s embattled presidential campaign took another hit Monday when almost his entire press shop resigned their posts.


The decision by Brian Jones, Danny Diaz, Matt David, research director Brian Rogers and South Carolina press secretary Adam Temple to step down was not unexpected, but was yet another sign the Arizona senator will have to rebuild a campaign ? that once boasted a roster filled with some of the GOP?s most talented political operatives ? from scratch.


?It has been my sincere honor and privilege to serve Senator John McCain,? Diaz wrote in his departure email. ?Best of luck to each and every one of you in the days and weeks ahead.?


Today?s resignations come less than one week after several senior staffers including Campaign Manager Terry Nelson and Chief Strategist John Weaver stepped down when the Arizona senator sought to restructure the campaign operation.


Moving forward, McCain?s New Hampshire spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker will head the press shop, while longtime confidante Rick Davis will lead the campaign.

Get over yourself and drop out

What does it matter?

It doesn't but I carry a grudge for that man like no other. I just couldn't stand all the things I've heard of him for the past three years about how he's such a maverick when that whole image was simply cultivated to suit his political needs. I just think of him as a major phony and am now very much glad the whole train has went off the tracks.


Call it lame or whatever but I won't back down on it.
