Joe McCain Makes News
WJLA in Washington reported tonight that GOP presidential nominee John McCain's brother, Joe, apparently called Alexandria's 911 emergency system earlier this week to complain about traffic.
According to the report, a man berated the 911 operator with an expletive after being told he shouldn't be calling to complain about traffic on the Beltway. When the operator called back, he got a voice mail that said, "Hi, this is Joe McCain, I can't take this message now because I am involved in a very important family political project."
After the operator left a message, the man called 911 again to complain about being given the "riot act."
Gail Gitcho, a McCain spokeswoman, declined comment.
Joe McCain has been campaigning across Virginia for his brother. Last month, Joe McCain made news at a campaign stop in Loudoun County when he referred to Arlington and Alexandria as "communist country." He later apologized, saying he was trying to make a joke.
