News Flash: John McCain obeys law, New York Times reports, but they miss the real story.

New York Times is biasedThe New York Times, in an attempt to mend fences with the Democratic Party friends over their ridiculous story blaming Hillary Clinton for the negativity and lack of issues in the Democratic primary, has once again taken aim at John McCain and ended up shooting themselves in the foot.

It isn’t a baseless story about an affair that wasn’t, this time it’s about McCain obeying the law about the use of private jets.  The Times reports:

Mr. McCain’s campaign paid a total of $241,149 for the use of that plane from last August through February, records show. That amount is approximately the cost of chartering a similar jet for a month or two, according to industry estimates.

The senator was able to fly so inexpensively because the law specifically exempts aircraft owned by a candidate or his family or by a privately held company they control.

So no law was broken, but it’s worthy of reporting.  No wonder the Times is in the process of going under.

The Times reports that the FEC is missing the number of members to make rule changes:

The Federal Election Commission adopted rules in December to close the loophole – rules that would have required substantial payments by candidates using family-owned planes – but the agency soon lost the requisite number of commissioners needed to complete the rule making.

One thing they fail to mention is that the hold placed on the nomination of the commissioner needed, Hans Von Spakovsky, was blocked in the Senate by Barack Obama.  How do we know this?  We’ve spoken with Mr. Von Spakovsky, who recently withdrew his name from consideration because of the trouble getting confirmed, on the matter.  And who could benefit the most from this?  Barack Obama.  Think about it…
