    He basically helped a Republican candidate subvert  Arizona election law so the candidate would qualify for public funding for his race. The candidate got away with it.

    Commission action leaves funding campaign allegation unresolved

    Did the state Republican Party violate election laws by helping a candidate collect $5 contributions so he could get public funding to run for the Legislature?

    That question will remain unanswered, at least officially, for a while in the wake of the Citizens Clean Elections Commission's decision Tuesday that it doesn't need to tackle that issue right away.

    It turns out that Republican Patrick Kaminsky did not qualify for public funding for his campaign for the District 25 Senate seat because he failed to collect enough $5 contributions by the Aug. 24 deadline....

    The commission plans to consult with Secretary of State Betsey Bayless - her office oversees state elections - to determine what should be done about the issue of whether the GOP crossed the line in its mailing for Kaminsky.

    Cummiskey attorney David Eagle urged the commission to not let the matter drop. "What we have brought to your attention is a violation of the law," he said.

    Nathan Sproul, executive director of the Republican Party, later said it was easy to see through Cummiskey's complaint. "We know he's vulnerable and he's scared."

      Just a hunch and I'm trying to track down articles now. But in the Austin American-Statesman (Texas) on February 21, 2000 article, In Arizona, McCain has his doubters Sproul disses the Senator, "Another reason for McCain's less-than-stellar performance in the polls, according to Arizona GOP director Nathan Sproul, is that Arizona has so many newcomers -- almost a million in the past 10 years. The state population is 4.6 million."

      McCain was strongly against Sproul's "No Taxpayer Money for Politicians effort"
