Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Friday said Mitt Romney is benefitting indirectly from "foreign money" after casino mogul Sheldon Adelson pledged $10 million to a super-PAC that supports his presidential bid.
"Much of Mr. Adelson's casino profits that go to him come from his casino in Macau, which says that obviously, maybe in a roundabout way foreign money is coming into an American political campaign," McCain told PBS's "News Hour."
.... The Arizona lawmaker said he is concerned about the donation to the Restore Our Future super-PAC that supports Romney.
"That is a great deal of money, and we need a level playing field and we need to go back to the realization... that we have to have a limit on the flow of money, and corporations are not people," McCain said.
Conservatives are already swatting back liberal complaints about huge individual donors, and McCain's comments -- while certainly not a surprise -- won't endear him any further to the grassroots.
