John McCain complains about big donations

WASHINGTON - Senator John McCain said in an interview posted online Friday that “foreign money’’ was helping fellow Republican Mitt Romney’s presidential hopes and singled out one of his ally’s most generous supporters.

McCain, the GOP’s 2008 presidential nominee, suggested casino developer Sheldon Adelson’s $10 million contribution to a pro-Romney super PAC, Restore Our Future, was a conduit for Adelson to use profits from properties in Macau to shape American elections. McCain also criticized the Supreme Court ruling that allows individuals and corporations to make such unlimited donations to nominally independent political action committees.
