McCAIN-FEINGOLD - MONEY & POLITICS - ABC’s THE VIEW

Post by johnkarls »

.
Our 3/18/2020 meeting was the seventh time in our 14.5-year existence that we have focused on campaign-finance reform.

Our next-most-recent meeting focusing on campaign-finance reform on 5/16/2018 had resulted in unanimous approval for sending an E-mail to The Honorable U.S. Senator John McCain since he had been the co-sponsor of McCain-Feingold (aka The Bi-Partisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002) capping six years of hearings.

Our e-mail to Sen. McCain is available at viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1753&sid=e6cfb9ada ... fba90be532.

The Suggested Discussion Outline for our 3/18/2020 meeting had concluded with a proposal to re-direct our May 2018 plea to Sen. McCain to Meghan McCain and her colleagues at ABC’s The View to take up Sen. McCain’s “fallen banner” and pursue for as long as it takes his dream of Getting Money Out Of Politics.

Our last weekly e-mail before the meeting invited all of our 175 members (not just our 11 meeting RSVP’s) to opine on the proposal.

The proposal enjoyed unanimous support.

HOWEVER, our weekly e-mail had said that in re-directing our May 2018 plea to Sen. McCain to Meghan McCain and her colleagues at ABC’s The View, there would be “appropriate modifications.”

This was because John McCain knew quite a bit about campaign-finance reform (being, inter alia, the co-sponsor of McCain-Feingold after 6 years of hearings) so we knew that we would have to explain to his daughter and her “The View” colleagues quite a bit that John McCain knew and didn’t need to have explained.

Here is the result which was drafted by Yours Truly and “scrubbed down” by three of our members who are attorneys --


BTW, since our plea was NOT aimed at politicians who might be impressed by how many identical e-mails we can put in their in-baskets, the campaign to Meghan and her colleagues took the form of a single letter addressed to each of them – similar to the single letters that were sent to each of the Presidents of the 12 Federal Reserve Regional Banks more than two years ago on a different topic (a sample copy is available for download at viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1685&sid=cef536bd1 ... 626558f419).
