More on Cindy's Illegal Drug Use, Aided by McCain's Senate Office

Nick Juliano at Raw Story has more on the allegations coming out against McCain.  There are journal entries from Gosinski and details about the McCain's 'marriage of convenience'.  I'm still struck by the diplomatic passport for Cindy that allowed her to keep her own bags away from customs, which would have found her drug stash when she was on non-surgical trips to El Salvador and Bangladesh.  This passport was procured by John McCain's Senate office, and McCain aides Mark Salter and Torie Clarke often worked on logistics for Cindy's charity.

They're the Abuse of Power team! (4.00 / 3)
McCain and Palin... perfect clones of Bush-Cheney!

This better be true (0.00 / 0)
because if I get one more e-mail from someone complaining about how Obama people are disgusting for trying to smear Sarah Palin and linking the article on Palin, followed by a rant about how "this is why Obama is going to lose, and he hates women and that's why he fucked over Clinton" I'm going to scream.  

You know what's bizarre about this. . . (0.00 / 0)
That the Bush people didn't pick up on this in 2000.  Screw that "black child" thing, Eskew would've had a field day pushing this story.

Of course, Obama won't pursue it, because he's too noble and his staff is too slow.  I guess they're too worried about a pig.

Wrong target (0.00 / 0)
Obama shouldn't HAVE to pursue this story.  This is the sort of thing the PRESS is supposed to do.

Thank goodness Matt Stoller is on the case.  We'll be hearing more about this in the big dumb media soon.

does this story have legs (0.00 / 0)
it should....but lipstick and pigs are what is selling

Everyone serving prison time for this type of crime should be released (0.00 / 0)
I favor legalizing all drugs. My wife whom I love with all my heart and soul is serving an 8-year prison sentence for drug possession in Kentucky. She got involved in using pain killers to control chronic pain that she suffered after falling 30 feet breaking her back and both legs several years ago. Unlike Cindy McCain, she didn't engage in an elaborate scheme to obtain pain relief by forging prescriptions. She bought pain relief on the street after her health insurance was cancelled and she no longer could afford to see a doctor. Unlike Cindy McCain, she didn't have connections to make the case disappear.

I sympathize with Cindy McCain because she needed help and I do not believe that a prison sentence was appropriate. However, everyone else should be treated the same way.

Why is Cindy McCain free today when my wife is rotting in prison?
