Democrats To Seek FEC Investigation Of McCain Financing

The national Democratic party wants election regulators to decide if Senator John McCain would violate any laws by withdrawing from the primary election's public finance system.

McCain, who had been entitled to nearly six million dollars, has decided to bypass the system so he can avoid spending limits between now and the national convention.

Federal Election Commission Chairman David Mason notified McCain that he can only withdraw from public financing if he answers questions about a campaign loan and obtains approval from four of six commission members. Such approval is doubtful in the short term because the commission has four vacancies and cannot convene a quorum.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean says McCain "poses as a reformer but seems to think reforms apply to everyone but him."
