Sex Scandal: John McCain and Vicki Iseman
There is breaking news about alleged sex scandal between John McCain and lobbyist Vicki Iseman. Iseman is a powerful lobbyist in Washington DC. Click here to see MSNBC report on this story.
Both McCain and Iseman deny that there was ever a relationship.
However, McCain campaign advisors were worried about the fact that Iseman kept turning up with him in a variety of place such as fundraisers, corporate jets and private offices.
These advisors were concerned enough to to instruct staff members to block the woman’s access, privately warning her away and repeatedly confronting him. Later it was reported that McCain wrote letters to government employees on behalf of the lobbyist’s clients.
McCain's career almost skidded off the rails during the savings & loan embezzlement issues known as the Keating Five scandal. McCain re-invented himself after the Keating Five scandal and became a crusader in a number of ethics areas.
The odd thing is that the relationship supposedly occurred while McCain was campaigning for the presidency in 2000. Why is it breaking now?
