Huffington Post: John McCain Raises Money From Chamber Of Commerce During Wall Street Reform Debate


May 6, 2010- Sen. John McCain stepped away from the Senate debate on Wall Street reform Thursday to raise a little campaign cash at the Chamber of Commerce's townhouse near the Capitol.

The Arizona Republican and former presidential candidate arrived in a Ford Fusion with Arizona plates and was immediately confronted by Center for American Progress blogger Lee Fang, who asked if McCain supported the Democrats' legislative response to the Supreme Court's decision undoing restrictions on corporate campaign ad spending.

McCain said he did not: "As far as I can tell, to start with, there is no provision concerning unions."

Fang suggested that the bill treated unions and corporations the same. (It does, according to the outline, but the bill's opponents say the sections that ban ad spending by government contractors and foreign-owned corporations wouldn't apply to labor groups.)

"It favors the unions a great deal," McCain said.
