Apparently some kind of story that his advisors say that he had a romantic relationship with blonde female lobbyist named Iseman.

Edit: Whoops, It's actually MSNBC with Dan Abrams I'm watching, not CNN. I get the non-Fox newschannels confused.

Fox is reporting it also........as a complete baseless, sourceless rumor.

If true, is it worse that it's adultery or is it worse that its hypocrisy because Saint John got involved with a lobbyist?

Did Sen. Hucabee just get his miracle?

John McCain just became slightly interesting.

edit: Nevermind. Still rather dull.

I guess I don't understand the story. He didn't report a flight with a lobbyist back in 1999? And now they're saying that she had an "inappropriate" relationship with him back then? Is that the story?

Ron Paul married 51 years to his wife!

It makes me sick that Louisiana had so many people vote for Pro-Life Pro-Family delegates to represent them at the state convention, and all of the Pro-Life Pro-Family people said McCain had the best record on this. Countless senators spoke about the wonderful McCain and how he stands for conservative values.

They could have at least went Huckabee. I hope they feel stupid now.

I read the long article and I kept waiting for details or an actual accusation that they had an affair, but neither was present in the story. Is the NYT's big revalation that they were around each other often enough that people began to talk?

Very weak even for a NYT hit job.

Pat Buchanan: "If this is all they got, it's terribly unfair. If they have more, why isn't it in the story?... It seems to not be worthy of a New York Times story."

and here's the first link I found concerning the McCain-female lobbyist story that Dan Abrams was just talking about on MSNBC.

That's the only link. That's where the story originates from. This isn't "breaking news" and Abrams was commenting on the NYTimes article, which isn't even about that incident from 8 years ago anyways. It just tossed the hand grenade in there for the hell of it I guess (it focuses more on the Keating Five incident from 20 years ago).
