She Gets Around…

iseman.jpgGetting publicly exposed in the NYT for an inappropriate relationship with telecom lobbyist Vicki Iseman only a week after taking time off the campaign trail to vote for a bill giving retroactive immunity to the telecos in the Senate FISA bill makes the timing kinda awkward for St. John McVain.

And then there’s this:

She spent most of her waking hours learning the business, and it paid off handsomely. Eight years later she became the youngest partner ever in the firm, counting among her clients PAX tv, Religious Voices in Broadcasting, Telemundo, the Hispanic Broadcasting Corporation, and Computer Sciences Corporation. In addition, she has met Melanie Griffith, Britney Spears, Bo Derek, and former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

Iseman said that the most important aspect of her job is the effect that one person can have on legislation in small communities and educational institutions. “Where my heart lies is in education,” she said. “I believe it is the great equalizer.”

Digby:

By the way, as this alleged relationship was happening (or shortly before) John McCain voted to impeach Clinton on both counts. One of those counts had to do with concealing his plan to help Monica Lewinsky land a job.

What a maverick.
