« Putting John McCain on the couch

John McCain, Republican Party are reviewing curious donations
John McCain moved Thursday to return about $50,000 in donations raised by a defense contractor who has amassed $500,000 for his presidential campaign.

McCain’s campaign has been stung by news accounts raising questions about some donations. The campaign sent letters to donors whose contributions were solicited by Florida businessman Harry Sargeant III and his business partner Mustafa Abu-Naba'a, a Jordanian native.

"We’re going to take the precautionary step of returning the contributions solicited by Mr. Abu-Naba’a," McCain spokesman Brian Rogers said, noting that one of the donors was quoted as saying he gave the money but would not vote for McCain. "It just didn’t sit right."

Republican National Committee spokesman Alex Conant said the RNC also would review Sargeant's donations.
