The Republican candidate’s brother, Joe McCain, called 911 in Alexandria, Va., to complain about traffic on the Wilson Bridge:
Operator: Alexandria 911, state your emergency
Caller: Well, it’s not an emergency but do you know why on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95 traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet traffic’s coming the other way across the drawbridge?
Operator: Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic? (pause)
Caller: “[Expletive]” (caller hangs up)
The operator called the caller back and received this message: “Hi this is Joe McCain I can’t take this message now because I’m involved in a very (inaudible) important political project… I hope on Nov. 4th we have elected John.”
Here’s video of a news report about the incident:
And now Joe’s resigning from his brother’s campaign:
The brother of presidential candidate Sen. John McCain said Friday he’ll withdraw from campaign activities after calling 911 to complain about traffic. Joe McCain also apologized for making the call.
Traffic in the DC area could induce apoplectic rage in anyone, but cussing out a 911 operator — well, that’s not the kind of change we can believe in.
