Kerry Calls Swifties

According to Drudge John Kerry called out to his new enemy, the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. Apparently, this is what happened:
KERRY: "Why are all these swift boat guys opposed to me?"

BRANT: "You should know what you said when you came back, the impact it had on the young sailors and how it was disrespectful of our guys that were killed over there."

[Brant had two men killed in battle.]

KERRY: "When we dedicated swift boat one in '92, I said to all the swift guys that I wasn't talking about the swifties, I was talking about all the rest of the veterans."

Kerry then asked if he could meet Brant ["You were one of the best"] -- man to man -- face to face.

Brant declined the invite, explaining that Kerry was obviously not prepared to correct the record on exactly what happened during Vietnam and what happened when Kerry came back.

Doesn't this violate Campaign Finance Reform? If Bush called the Swifties and asked them to stop, it would be a 5 inch headline above the fold in the New York Times.
