Remember how the NY Times had a front page story about John McCain's relationship with an attractive blond lady lobbyist, implying they were having an affair? And then John McCain and his campaign called the article full of lies and the Times full of liberal bias? (The article also examined McCain's close ties to lobbyists.) Well, now with the election well over, the lobbyist is suing the Times! The NY Times, ahem, reports that Vicki Iseman has sued the paper and some editors and reporters for “falsely communicat[ing]" that she "had an illicit ‘romantic’ and unethical relationship in breach of the public trust in 1999." Iseman, seeking damages of $27 million, says the article was based on "minimum factual support" and says she suffered an "avalanche of scorn, derision, and ridicule." The Daily News notes the statement from the Times: "We fully stand behind the article. We continue to believe it to be true and accurate, and that we will prevail."
