    RAW STORY HAS IT! WHAT MCSAME COVERED UP
    http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Whistl...lege_0911.html
    Whistleblower breaks 15-year silence to allege McCain hid wife's drug abuseNick Juliano
    Published: Thursday September 11, 2008


    Cindy McCain's addiction to prescription painkillers emerged into public view 14 years ago with a well-orchestrated PR campaign designed to preserve her husband's political future.

    Aside from a lengthy contemporary investigation from Phoenix's alternative weekly and occasional mentions since then, the addiction back-story -- including ample questions about what John McCain knew, when he knew it and questions over whether he was complicit in the cover-up -- has gone largely untold. Until now.

    Tom Gosinski, a former employee of the medical-aid charity Cindy McCain used as personal supplier of Percocet and Vicodin, is speaking out publicly for the first time.

    On Wednesday, Gosinski sat down with RAW STORY and other outlets to tell his story and distribute copies of his personal journal from his time with the American Voluntary Medical Team in the last half of 1992, where he voiced ever more acute concerns and frustrations over McCain's drug use and its impact on her mood and job performance.

    5. Okay, now you can go away for a month.
    You wasted our time hyping a bullshit nothing of a decade-old story based on the word of a disgruntled former employee who was involved in litigation with the McCains.

    EPIC FAIL.

    8. OMG!!! Cindy was addicted to painkillers 15 years ago??? That's HUGH!!!!
    ...and, being her husband, he helped keep it quiet.

    Gee, I don't know how the Republican Party will ever recover from this.

    Honestly, this little drama should end with a little forced time out.

    Too funny. And it figures Raw Story is the source. A washed up story
    being given "new" life by a bunch of keyboard commandos.

    lonestar should get a TS for stupidity.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    "Tom Gosinski, a former employee of the medical-aid charity Cindy McCain used as personal supplier of Percocet and Vicodin, is speaking out publicly for the first time."
    Baloney. Gosinski came out with this story, and his journals, back in 1994.

    http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/1994-...e-for-the-mrs/

    He is RETELLING it now.

    "Tom Gosinski Surfaces to Retell Cindy McCain Drug Story"

    http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/val...s_to_retel.php

    The timing is obvious. He has an axe to grind against McCain and he is hoping to use this story to sink McCain in the election.

    "Gosinski, who believes he was fired because he had learned too much about McCain's drug abuse, says he has remained quiet out of fear of retribution from John McCain or his political allies."
    Gosinski is a liar. He has not remained silent over this He came out with this well over a decade ago. And even if it were true, why isnt he afraid now?

    "After he was fired from AVMT, Gosinski, a lifelong Republican,"
    I'll believe he was a "lifelong Republican" after I've seen his voter registration records.

    128. And since this flaccid piece of drivel has yet to be locked I will now
    be officially blocking lonestarnot, just based on this contrived over reaction piece of colossal bullshit that tied up DU for absolutely no good fucking reason.

    good riddance
