In response to the remarks, John McCain had a surrogate, Colonel Bud Day, respond to the charges. Colonel Day is best known for his appearance in a Swift Boat Veterans For Truth ad that questioned John Kerry's Purple Hearts, an attack that McCain denounced at the time.
Not only is it unproven that John McCain had a surrogate. Colonel Bud Day and swift boats has nothing to do with Wesley Clark--jp 10:35, 1 July 2008 (EDT)
- I reworded the claim and inserted it into the article again. Day may not be a surrogate, but he is part of a new group of McCain supporters (I'm not sure if the name "Truth Squad" is official or simply a widespread nickname, though), and the ABC article even points out this connection as ironic. I hope this clears things up. --KevinM 13:42, 1 July 2008 (EDT)
