Very interesting story in National Journal:
John McCain’s presidential campaign has finally paid off its debt to 3eDC, a private Web company linked to campaign manager Rick Davis and his longtime lobbying pal, Paul Manafort. But there’s one big curiosity: Last year, the cash-starved campaign, without explanation, reported to the Federal Election Commission that 3eDC’s bill had been reduced by $107,000. In the end, 3eDC was paid $972,000, not the $1,079,000 originally billed. “It’s always a serious question for the public and auditors when over $100,000 is removed without explanation from a financial disclosure report,” says Kent Cooper, a political money expert and former FEC official. “Indeed, this raises the question of whether actual services were provided and the bill was reduced, making it an illegal corporate contribution.”

“Civilization masks us with a screen, from ourselves and from one another, with thin depth of unreality. We habitually live — do we not? — in a world self-created, half established, of false values arbitrarily upheld, largely inspired by misconception, misapprehension, wrong perspective, and defective proportion, misapplication.”
