McCain dumped his first wife after cheating on her

The first Mrs. McCain

Republican presidential nominee John McCain has made a big stink about his support for an anti-gay marriage ballot measure that will be on the California ballot in November.  So you would think that he values marriage.  You would be wrong about that.

According to a major expose in a British newspaper, McCain ought to be ashamed of himself!  His current wife, Cindy, who is 18 years younger than him and worth millions, is NOT his first wife.  It turns out that his first wife, Carol (pictured above), waited patiently for him when he was a prisoner in Vietnam.  But she had a bad car accident in the interim and she was badly disfigured.  When McCain got out he started carousing with other women and then later dumped Carol so he could quickly marry Cindy.  Her family’s money paved the way for his political career.

After all that, Carol still supports McCain.  She insists he did not dump her because of her physical problems: ‘My marriage ended because John McCain didn’t want to be 40, he wanted to be 25. You know that happens…it just does.’

There are plenty of witnesses to what McCain did to his first wife, including this account:

Ted Sampley, who fought with US Special Forces in Vietnam and is now a leading campaigner for veterans’ rights, said: ‘I have been following John McCain’s career for nearly 20 years. I know him personally. There is something wrong with this guy and let me tell you what it is – deceit.

‘When he came home and saw that Carol was not the beauty he left behind, he started running around on her almost right away. Everybody around him knew it.

‘Eventually he met Cindy and she was young and beautiful and very wealthy. At that point McCain just dumped Carol for something he thought was better.

And check out what Ross Perot has to say about McCain:

But Ross Perot, who paid her medical bills all those years ago, now believes that both Carol McCain and the American people have been taken in by a man who is unusually slick and cruel – even by the standards of modern politics.

‘McCain is the classic opportunist. He’s always reaching for attention and glory,’ he said.

‘After he came home, Carol walked with a limp. So he threw her over for a poster girl with big money from Arizona. And the rest is history.’

Wow.  Nothing like Republican family values.  And to think that the Reeps think gay couples are a threat to marriage.
