John McCain caught cheating on his wife?

Posted on Updated on

What are the Republicans going to do now?  They have selected their candidate – John McCain.  Their candidate is now about to become engrossed in a sex scandal where he cheated on his wife with a Washington lobbyist – Vicki Iseman!  Times Online has the story. Here’s the first paragraph:

John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, was last night romantically linked to a 40-year-old female political lobbyist and accused of granting her clients political favours.

UPDATE: Billyblog writes a great comment that has to be shared:

Matt asks: “How did we get to the point where sexual misadventures are practically the only thing that can sink a politician’s career?”

Well, could it be because “principled” politicians such as John McCain joined the dog pack to impeach Bill Clinton for his sexual peccadilloes?  And you can look it up here.  Oh yeah, right, it was for perjury and had nothing to do with sex.

Thanks Billyblog.  John McCain, one of the infamous KEATING 5 – what a horrible scandal – voting for impeachment of a president over sex.  A man who seems to have cheated on every wife he’s had and is giving out government favors to his lobbyist mistress.  If the GOP doesn’t change nominees at the convention they’re going to lose in November…which is ok with me.

    Let’s just clarify things..

    For 2008 McCain is not the right candidate for our country, Obama is (I’m a supporter so I’m biased).

    HOWEVER the McCain that ran in 2000 would have been the BEST Republican Nominee of the last 50 years. At the time I would have a tough time deciding between McCain and Gore. Now of course Gore is the obvious choice as he was against the war from Day One (Unlike past President Clinton) and McCain was a huge supporter, and that alone makes Gore the better candidate, someone we all wish we had. Note that McCain had the South Carolina primary stolen from him, the same way George Bush stole Florida from Gore.

    The last 5 years or so he has signed onto every failed policy or agenda of bushes, sold out, but he has done some impressive things.

    If he was willing to take on campaign finance and lobbbyst reform as a Republican and could get solid Republican support we would have huge changes in Washington.

    For Barack, the moment is now.

    For McCain the days he should be honored for are in the past, and as this is his last chance he has sold out for the Presidency.

    Problem with McCain is for him to get done his agenda in 2000 of lobbyist and campaign finance fraud all the forces would be against it and they would expose his transgressions…we need someone above politics.

    It is really sad that McCain is apologizing to the Republicans for these past positions he took..

    With the economy the way it is that will hurt McCain’s chances more than the Iraq War.

    I’m not going to defend Mcain, but I will rip the New Yellow Times a new one for their “stellar” performance as so-called purveyors of the “truth” (their ‘adulterated’ version of it…which is really a big, fat lie).

    As to the Keating scandal…there were people who went to jail over that one. Mcain was NOT one of them.

    I guess the demoncratic prosecutors did about as good a job on that one as the New Yuck Times did in its research on this so-called “scandal”…when will these liberals actually do something constructive for a change?

    I think that this story may be much ado about not too much. I am a strong Democrat, but the New York Times doesn’t seem to be able to verify this story to the American people. Therefore, that means that the story could have come from anyone. And, I just don’t think that we should condemn a man when there is no proof. Also, I am not interested in what these candidates do in their personal lives. Some people seem so interested in that, and I don’t know why. We should only be concerned about how these people behave as elected representatives. Now, if he did something that he shouldn’t have concerning taking bribes or unwarrented contributions from lobbyists, then that is something that we should be concerned about, but not this personal stuff!

    Did any of you even read the article? It was a joke and an obvious smear job against John Mccain. NO named sources, it relied on the word of “former associates”, who could very well be working for a different campaign now. This article wasn’t fit to be printed. I ask you, WHY is the NYT so willing to print an unfounded story on Mccain, and at the same time completely ignore Obama’s lawsuit, gay sex scandle and drug abuse??? And there’s people willing to actually GO ON RECORD to back it up? And Mccain gets smeared by people hiding in the shadows?? Give me a break!!!

    Oh come on folks…. give a girl a break.

    What $500 an hour girl doesn’t want to go legit ?

    Julia Roberts did it in a movie.

    Do you really think there is a difference between a lobbyist charging $500 an hour to attend a ‘party’ or a $500 an hour for another person working the lobby ?

    The end is still the same. Everyone get’s serviced in exchange for renumeration.

    The free economic system.

    If I could travel in a private jet all over the world for free and have Vicki tend to my needs…I would most likley be tempted.

    As President I can look forward to a bigger private jet. A 747 and probably Vicki’s younger sister.

    Many great leaders have made poor decisions when it comes to pretty women. And I’m sure that she’s not just an innocent by-stander either. She probably used her sex appeal in her lobbying efforts.

    The Republicans are just relieved that McCain is being outed for an affair with a woman. As one of the glorious Keating Five, McCain knows how to work the system for all he can get and then find a way to survive. That’s what seven decades of experience will do for you. I can’t wait until he announced that philandering is his personal fountain of youth.

    John McCain had an affair with cindy mccain while still married to carol his first wife. so yes he does like blonds and it is possible that he did have something with this woman.

    I have been wondering how the Bush family could tolerate having McCain as the Republic Party’s nominee. I think this is a way to get rid of McCain and get someone else… perhaps even Jeb Bush… to take McCain’s place.

    I think we should wait till the jury comes in before we consign McCain to the pits of hell for adultery. I am not a huge McCain fan, but I am sick of the gossip and guilty till proven innocent crap the media sends our way.

    The republican candidate has technically not been chosen yet… during the RNC the delegates and the super-delegates will decide. Most delegates do not have to vote the way the states actually went; which is good news for candidates like Hucabee and Paul.

    Dr. Paul is in an especially good position since he has a large majority of delegates willing to side with him if the convention goes brokered. This could actually be a blessing in disguise for the Liberty Movement.

    I think you are getting a little bit ahead of yourself with following through with allegations of an affair. Best re-read the NYT article. “Annonymous” sources allege an “inappropriate relationship” and you have allowed yourself to jump to the conclusion that it was sexual. Furthermore, this was a story that the NYT has been researching for months, but it did not stop them from endorsing McCain several weeks ago. If this were that serious an issue, why would their editorial board endorse such a scallywag?

    I’m not a big fan of McCain, although he is my preference over the other two choices from the opposing party. I AM in favor of fair reporting. If the NYT has proof of a sexual relationship between McCain (would not be his first affair by the way as one such relationship ended his first marriage) and this woman, then they ought to report it in those terms. NYT suffers from image as biased in their reporting anyway, and this inuendo only serves to further that reputation.

    There was no sex scandal, only disgruntled former aides who want to stop McCain from exerting his evil CFR agenda on America. He urinated on the First Amendment with McCain-Feingold, brokers a backroom deal to give amnesty to millions of law-breakers, and will bankrupt our economy further with his global carbon tax. He must be stopped at all costs. I applaud the aides who blew the whistle on him and the NYT for having the guts to report this.

    This isn’t a smear but if McCain was lobbied by Iseman and did favors for the entity she represented and if McCain did reveal to his staff that he was falling off the family values train, which means nothing to him, in his relationship with Iseman then it is a statement of what is to come for McCain by the utra-nuthead conservatives. Who runs the NYTimes but Arthur Sulsberger–not a friend of the Democrat’s. And I am quite sure the NYTimes wouldn’t push this article if it didn’t have more on McCain to the anguish of McCain.

    I am tired of such smears. While i am not a fan of McCain, there is nothing connecting these two sexually. The NY Times article omitted the stuff they had in McCain’s favor and the favors they refer to are very tame and would be done for almost anyone asking a senators office.

    The only relevant part of this story is that he was granting political favors for a lobbyist, and that should certainly be investigated further. As for the supposed affair, that’s no one’s business except for Vicki Iseman, John McCain, and his wife. The invasive prying into Bill Clinton’s relationship with Monica Lewinsky by the media and Congress was despicable, and this is no better, despite any short-term satisfaction of seeing what comes around go around to bite the Republicans in their collective ass.

    How did we get to the point where sexual misadventures are practically the only thing that can sink a politician’s career?
