British Lord hosting fundraiser for McCain in London. Seriously, a British Lord.

McCain is already on the verge of breaking U.S. campaign finance laws by busting the spending cap. He’s been having trouble raising money in the U.S., too. But, this borders on the absurd:

Sen. John McCain plans at least one campaign event on his week-long congressional trip to Europe and the Middle East: a March 20 fundraiser in London. An invitation sent out by the campaign says the luncheon will be held at Spencer House, St. James’s Place, “by kind permission of Lord Rothschild OM GBE and the Hon Nathaniel Rothschild.” Tickets to the invitation-only event cost $1,000 to $2,300. Attire is listed as “lounge suits.”

According to the McCain campaign, in keeping with U.S. law, only Americans can contribute. But, the damn thing is being hosted by a Brit. They are not Americans.

Just for one second imagine the outcry on Fox News and right wing talk radio if a Democrat had a fundraiser in London hosted by a British Lord or any foreigner.
