Yesterday, I held a press conference about Sen. John McCain's extensive ties to Ponzi scheme artists who swindled money from innocent victims to fund McCain's failed presidential campaign. In total, my staff was able to identify well over a million dollars of money funneled into McCain's campaign through campaign finance reform loopholes that all stemmed from illegal activity. McCain's official response: McCain couldn't identify his TOP fundraiser out of a lineup - yet numerous pictures paint a different story.
During the press conference, I called on John McCain to donate the $1.1 million in dirty money he received to a charitable fund for victims of his criminal donor's Ponzi scheme. McCain failed to respond, and the Arizona press corps failed to report on this game-changing issue.
What this proved to me is that McCain's stronghold with the media is oppressive. I have no way to combat McCain's attacks on me, no way to expose McCain's ties to illegal activities, no way to get my consistent conservative message through "free" media. Simply put, if the Arizona media will not report on McCain's ties to convicted criminals, they will not report on my message, my campaign, or any information about McCain's record that is truthful.
That's why I need your help today. The only way to get my consistent conservative message out to the voters of Arizona is through paid advertisements. My campaign has worked night and day to get as much "free" media as possible to no avail.
The truth is, I need you to donate TODAY to help me get my message out to voters of Arizona. Early voting in Arizona starts on July 29th which means I must get advertisements on the radio and television in early July to reach the hundreds of thousands of voters who vote early by mail. To do that, I need to start buying timeslots TODAY - which means I need money to buy the ads TODAY.
I need your help in stopping the McCain media and money machine. $25 buys a television advertisement in a rural market; $1000 buys a television advertisement in the Phoenix Metro market. Please send $10, $25, $50, or more TODAY to help me get my message out to Arizona voters.
