Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is a longtime critic of the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United, which removed corporate limits on political spending and led to the rise of super PACs. But on Tuesday, he criticized the decision at a “storm relief” event in Bowling Green, Ohio, with Republican U.S. Senate candidate Josh Mandel, who has been a huge beneficiary of the spending.
“I think it’s been a disaster,” McCain said to reporters in answering a question on the decision, according to the Toledo Blade. “There is money coming in from places we never knew where it came from. And I guarantee you there will be scandals … and corruption, and then there will be reform.”
