    Isn't this all a major in-kind donation to McCain on the part of the company? The space, the paid workers, the security crew? Is McCain paying for this? If so, is it a legitimate legal estimated amount?

    And why is Worth doing this? How did McCain get them to do this, just cause they love them some GOP? Did McCain have Congressional dealings with the, or oversee hearings on applicable related business?

    I know that the GOP has cozy business relationships, but how is this legal?

      My guess is there is more but the main reason they were probably chosen was the backdrop.

      It's a construction company in Pennsylvania with hundreds of employees.  And they are obviously very Republican.

      On paper, they would provide the perfect stagecraft for the blue collar propaganda that McCain wants to sell in Pennsylvania and Ohio.

      On paper they picked the perfect state, the right size company, and the perfect backdrop.  They just overlooked a biggie.

      I shall not rest until right wing conservatives are 4th party gadflies limited to offering minor corrections on legislation once or twice a year.
