GOP money buoys McCain campaign

Despite accepting $84 million in public financing for his Presidential campaign, John McCain "has found a way to work around these limits. The Republican Party — and not his campaign committee — has paid for more than half of his campaign ads and outspent Obama on television in the first week following the conventions," reports Peter Overby of NPR.  McCain-Palin Victory 2008 is "a joint committee to raise money for the RNC, four of the state Republican parties and the legal compliance committee for McCain-Palin, which pays for the campaign committee's lawyers and accountants." Donors can contribute up to $67,800 to the victory committee with all money being funnelled back to the McCain campaign.
