McCain Denies It All

About McCain's alleged cozy relationship with lobbyist hottie Vicki Iseman:
Sen. John McCain on Thursday denied assertions published in The New York Times that he once had a close relationship with a female lobbyist whose clients had business before his Senate committee.

"I'm disappointed in The New York Times piece. It's not true," he told reporters in Toledo, Ohio, his wife, Cindy, standing by his side.

He added that he has never "done anything that would betray the public trust or make a decision" that would favor a particular group. His wife added that her husband always puts family and country first, and is "a man of great character." The New York Times issued a statement Thursday saying it stands by its reporting and that "the story speaks for itself."
I'm surprised to see the Times going with such a non-story. It all boils down to somebody being worried that it looked like McCain was getting too cozy with a female lobbyist. Meh. Nothing to see here. I'd be happy to see McCain dragged down in some shit, but this ain't it. Not even close.

McCain was the only survivor of the Keating Five scandal and I suspect he'll weather this bit as well. Clearly this revelation wasn't the work of the Democrats or they'd have sprung it in October. More evidence of how unhappy the conservatives are with their presumptive nominee.
