Breaking: McCain News Conference

Maverick and his wife are doing a press conference in response to the NY Times Story that rehashed old charges of ethical lapses and walked right up to the line of accusing him of having an affair with a lobbyist he may have done some favors for.

Fox News is streaming it live here.


Well, that was quick. It's all over.

"I'm very disappointed in the article. It's not true," the likely Republican presidential nominee said as his wife, Cindy, stood alongside him during a news conference called to address the matter.

McCain described the woman in question, lobbyist Vicki Iseman, as a friend.

The newspaper quoted anonymous aides as saying they had urged McCain and Iseman to stay away from each other prior to his failed presidential campaign in 2000. In its own follow-up story, The Washington Post quoted longtime aide John Weaver, who split with McCain last year, as saying he met with lobbyist Iseman and urged her to stay away from McCain.

Weaver told the Times he arranged the meeting after "a discussion among the campaign leadership" about Iseman.

McCain said he was unaware of any such conversation.
