This morning we learned of anonymous attacks on Mitt Romney for the Spartanburg straw poll. We were also reminded of McCain state director Trey Walker’s past email problems, SLED investigation, and near prosecution.
We now learn that that Trey has been using Henry McMaster’s state campaign for John McCain’s federal campaign. From the email below we see that an email sent from Trey, with no disclaimer, is actually paid for by the McMaster for Attorney General state campaign. We do not know the legalities of McCain-Feingold and using state campaign dollars for federal campaigns, but we will find out for you as soon as possible.
Per request, we have hidden the person’s name who sent us this email. Explanations below screen shots.
First we see the email sent from Trey and a pro-McCain article.
We then see the attack. Notice, there is no disclaimer. But when we click on the little link at the bottom of the screen that says “update profile/email address” the next screen pops up.
Notice the email was sent to Henry McMaster’s listserve, paid for by McMaster for Attorney General.
