McCain Will Review Donations From Fla. Bundler
By Matthew Mosk
Sen. John McCain's campaign will conduct a review of donations that were bundled by a well-connected Florida businessman following a report in The Washington Post that found a number of donors whose checks he bundled did not appear to have the means to make such large contributions.
The Associated Press is reporting that the campaign is sending a letter spelling out legal requirements to all donors who sent their contributions through Harry Sargeant III, the finance chairman of the Florida Republican Party. Of possible concern was that Sargeant relied on colleagues to help solicit the donations, including at least one partner who is not an American citizen. The law is unclear on the question of whether a foreign national can bundle checks for a political candidate, legal experts said today.
The wire report quotes a McCain spokesman saying the campaign is looking into hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions to make sure that they are appropriate.
