John McCain denies Vicki Iseman romantic relationship

Republican presidential candidate John McCain denied that his relationship with lobbyist Vicki Iseman was on the romantic side.

John McCain denies Vicki Iseman romantic relationship As the presidential election approach, the rumors and scandals with the current front runners will naturally increase. After the John Edwards love child scandal, now GOP candidate John McCain has been hit hard with rumors about a romantic relationship with female lobbyist Vicki Iseman. A report in the New York Times suggested that John McCain and Vicki Iseman had a relationship prior the elections which was on the romantic side, i.e. they were lovers. The New York Times quoted anonymous aides as saying they had urged McCain and lobbyist Vicki Iseman to stay away from each other prior to his failed presidential campaign back in 2000. Following suit, The Washington Post quoted longtime aide John Weaver, who split with McCain last year, as saying he met with lobbyist Vicki Iseman and urged her to stay away from McCain. The stories in the media also accused John McCain for pushing legislation, which had benefited clients of Iseman.

 John McCain was quick to issue a statement to address the rumors via his spokeswoman, who said: "It is a shame that The New York Times has lowered its standards to engage in a hit-and-run smear campaign. John McCain has a 24-year record of serving our country with honor and integrity. He has never violated the public trust, never done favors for special interests or lobbyists, and he will not allow a smear campaign to distract from the issues at stake in this election. Americans are sick and tired of this kind of gutter politics, and there is nothing in this story to suggest that John McCain has ever violated the principles that have guided his career."

 Later today McCain held a news press conference vigorously denying any romantic relationship with Vicki Iseman. "It's not true," said McCain, his wife Cindy standing by his side during the conference. He also said that Vicki Iseman was simply a friend of his and their relationship goes no further.

 The latest presidential scandal did nothing to shake the odds on John McCain to win the Republican nomination, as well as to become the next President of the United States. Although many punters hope to see the odds on John McCain lengthened long enough to take advantage, McCain is still the absolute favorite at the online odds maker BodogLife to win the GOP nomination with odds 1/60 and his odds to win the Elections are sitting at 3/2.
