McCain criticizes Dems for lack of bipartisan effort on Disclose Act

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the godfather of campaign finance reform, criticized his Democratic colleagues on Tuesday for not seeking a bipartisan agreement on the Disclose Act.
“This is a partisan bill and I’m disappointed we’re wasting Senate time on a bill that has no chance of passing despite the utmost importance of this issue,” McCain said on the floor. “This bill falls short, the American people will see it for what it is: political opportunism at it’s best and political demagoguery at it’s worst.”
