>>New York Times: McCain Denies Romantic Relationship With Lobbyist

(New York, NY) -- Republican presidential candidate John McCain denies that he had a romantic relationship with a female lobbyist during the 2000 presidential election campaign. In a carefully worded article, "The New York Times" reports that 40-year-old Vicki Iseman was often seen with McCain at his offices, at fundraisers and on board a corporate jet owned by one of Iseman's clients. McCain was seeking the GOP presidential nomination at the time, running against then-Governor George Bush of Texas. The newspaper said, quote, "waves of anxiety swept through his small circle of advisors" over the relationship. It goes on to say McCain's top advisors intervened to "protect the candidate from himself." They told other staffers to keep Iseman away from McCain, fearing assumptions of a romantic relationship might become public.
Fucking New York Times liberal smear bullshit.

Nice timing on the NY Times, first they give him their endorsment after they have the story written, then they wait until he gets enough delegates for the nomination to release this. Looks like they are trying to railroad an election to me. You will never see an article like this about Hillary and the Rose Law Firm billings or the other numerous skeletons in her closet. And you definately will not see any negative articles about the alimighty Obama. You can't tell me that the rock star doesn't have a few mistresses on the side. With the millions that clown pours in each day in contributions, not all of them can be legit. Do a story on that. The NY Times has lost what little credibility they still had.

Oh please... Anyone who thought the NY Times wouldn't' go after McCain is delusional. Do they really think this guy has any more cross-over appeal than any other Republican??? Why would they vote for McCain when they can support a REAL Democrat?

We are reporting that John McCain has AIDS!

People are saying that Hillary Clinton stands up to piss.

People are saying.....no real source.....this is just irresponsible journalism.

The timing of this is just perfect also. The reporters who wrote this story refuse to answer any questons.

I'm not the biggest McCain fan, but this is just crap.

An 8 year old story... just now coming out.

Supposedly, the magazine New Republic knew about the story's lack of credibility or something, and was ready to go to press with an article outlining how the NYT tried to boost the story. And the Times apparently printed its story this morning because they didn't want to be embarrased by having the magazine print it's critique first.

No credible sources. This, from the NYT. The grey lady... who's supposed to be the epitome of journalism.

Here's something else the Times isn't denying:
“For months The New York Times has submitted questions and we have answered them fully and exhaustively, and unfortunately many of those answers were not included in the rather long piece in the New York Times,” McCain said.

McCain lamented that “this whole story is based on anonymous sources,” saying that could encompass any of the more than 100 aides he’s had contact with through the Commerce Committee.
This will do nothing but rally the base around McCain.

I think I missed the story all together. So McCain got close to a woman and some advisers may or may not have gotten nervous that he would do something with her. Where's the sex in this sex scandal? For that matter, where the story.

EXTRA EXTRA Read all about it! McCain made a friend of the female persuasion! :icon_roll

If I was McCain I'd make one single statement:

"Should the Clinton camp really be tossing around affair accusations so freely?"

Just around the time that Obama (along with his idiot wife) is starting to get a bit more scrutiny, including emphasis on just how liberal (read: socialist) some of his proposals really are.

Curious.

This could be much worse for McCain than a sex scandal:

The published reports said McCain and Iseman each denied having a romantic relationship. Neither story asserted that there was a romantic relationship and offered no evidence that there was, reporting only that aides worried about the appearance of McCain having close ties to a lobbyist with business before the Senate Commerce Committee on which McCain served.

The stories also allege that McCain wrote letters and pushed legislation involving television station ownership that would have benefited Iseman's clients.

In late 1999, McCain twice wrote letters to the Federal Communications Commission on behalf of Florida-based Paxson Communications - which had paid Iseman as its lobbyist - urging quick consideration of a proposal to buy a television station license in Pittsburgh. At the time, Paxson's chief executive, Lowell W. "Bud" Paxson, also was a major contributor to McCain's 2000 presidential campaign.

McCain did not urge the FCC commissioners to approve the proposal, but he asked for speedy consideration of the deal, which was pending from two years earlier. In an unusual response, then-FCC Chairman William Kennard complained that McCain's request "comes at a sensitive time in the deliberative process" and "could have procedural and substantive impacts on the commission's deliberations and, thus, on the due process rights of the parties."

McCain wrote the letters after he received more than $20,000 in contributions from Paxson executives and lobbyists. Paxson also lent McCain his company's jet at least four times during 1999 for campaign travel.

http://www.star-telegram.com/466/story/486028.html

And McCain is not helping himself by distorting the facts about his letters to the FCC, stating, "And the former chairman of the FCC at the time in 2000 said that was more than an appropriate role for me to play as chairman of the oversight committee."

The truth?

As The Boston Globe reported way back in 2000, William Kennard, the FCC chair at the time, had immediately objected to McCain's December 10, 1999 letter, replying four days later that it was "highly unusual" and that he was "concerned" at what effect McCain's letter might have on the decision process.

An earlier letter from McCain on the issue in November had not brought a similar rebuke. And McCain frequently wrote letters to the FCC requesting that it act on particular issues. But the December letter was remarkable for its insistence and call for each of the five commissioners to explain why they hadn't come to a decision.

The nyts, unawares or unconcerned of their own critics, has only brought conservatives closer to McCain.
That's one way to look at it. However another spin you could put on it, is IF the affair part of the story is true, than those self-righteous conservatives can stand on their soapboxes and say oh "he is not a family man, blah, blah, blah" and use this against him. You know how some of those conservatives throw stones.

There's also the not insignificant fact that McCain has an image of being incorruptable, and in the statement released last night claimed never to have done special favors for lobbyists or special interests. He may regret the wording of that statement.
