Sacramento, CA — The California Democratic Party is asking for an investigation of Governor Schwarzenegger and Senator John McCain for alleged violations of campaign finance law.
The allegations center on a scheduled March 20th fund-raiser in Beverly Hills in which donors have been asked to contribute up to 100 thousand dollars for the governor and the state Republican Party. McCain is the featured speaker at the event.
At issue is whether McCain´s appearance violates restrictions on federal officeholders taking part in events that solicit political funds.
Ironically, McCain is being accused of violating a law he helped write. Katie Levinson, a spokeswoman for the governor´s campaign, called the complaint nothing more than frivolous nonsense.
