Apparently there’s going to be an election after all. Despite reports that the eventual DNC nominee will wipe the floors with McCain the DNC is putting out attacks early. According to The Hill:

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) will file a complaint against Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Monday, charging that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee is breaking the law by trying to get out of a public financing agreement. In a Sunday afternoon conference call with reporters, DNC chairman Howard Dean said McCain’s attempt to withdraw from a loan agreement that hinged on an acceptance of public financing speaks directly to McCain’s “integrity.”

On the call, Dean repeatedly criticized McCain for allegedly violating a law he helped reform with the Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act of 2002 — generally referred to as McCain-Feingold. “They might as well just call it the Feingold law,” Dean said.

For the record, I agree. I wish it was only called the Feingold law. Maybe it never would have passed.
