McCain on Election Day Fraud, and The Voting Preferences of Mickey Mouse


From CBS News' John Bentley:

(PETERBOROUGH, N.H.) – John McCain has held over a hundred town halls during this election season, and he widely credits them for keeping his campaign afloat during the primaries. Tonight he held his final town hall meeting of the campaign, where the first question was about the integrity of Election Day on Tuesday.

"I'm concerned about many of the allegations that we are hearing through the media, particularly in some of the battleground states. And the activities, quite frankly, of ACORN and other organizations," McCain said. "It is disturbing, and one thing we want is to not have a repeat of the year 2000, the election in 2000. We want the American people to have confidence in the results, confidence in government is directly related to the confidence in the process that they pursued. So I am concerned about it, I do know that the FBI is conducting an investigation, and we will obviously have people who are observing the elections. I just hope that it all comes out so that there is no question about the election."

But McCain couldn't resist poking a little fun at the whole controversy, as well.

"By the way, I heard that Mickey Mouse was registered in Florida to vote now," McCain added. "I don't know if we ought to investigate that because I think the big rat is a Republican."
