Arizona Lacks at Least One Senator

Senator McCain recovering, Doesn’t Vote
“Might Return by Summer,” daughter says
21 legislative days until August recess

Wife attends meeting for him,
reporter sings her praise, two photos, but
fails to point out he is a no-show, again.

The lamestream media told you:

https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/arizona/2018/03/13/meghan-mccain-still-no-timetable-ailing-father-john-mccains-return-senate/422908002/

Dan Nowicki (Phoenix) There still is no timetable for U.S. Sen. John McCain to return to Washington, D.C., but his daughter on Tuesday floated the possibility of summer.

“I wish I had an exact date, but I just don’t,” Meghan McCain told Phoenix radio station KTAR-FM (92.3). "I am very cautiously optimistic about the summer, yes.”

Meghan McCain and her mother, Cindy McCain, last week helped shoot down a dubious online report anticipating McCain's resignation for health reasons.

Cindy McCain tweeted that her husband "is doing fine and has no intention of resigning!"

Meghan McCain likewise definitively dubbed the report, which had gotten some traction on social media, "FAKE NEWS."

While not giving interviews to the media, the elder McCain has continued to issue written statements from Arizona and remains active on Twitter.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Senator McCain, deathly ill with aggressive brain cancer, is not representing Arizona in public or in Congress, where you must be present to vote and participate. He is getting therapy at his cabin in Cornville, Ariz., and in hospitals, with the hoped for January return date come and gone. His daughter has appeared for and spoken for him more than once and on a local radio interview. His wife has also appeared on his behalf, which reporters just take in stride. Written statements attributed to the senator are being issued but he has not given any interviews in person.

In a published report, a local journalist covered a number of subjects but noticeably omitted the fact that McCain is not representing his state, leaving Arizona one vote short in the U.S. Senate. Arizona’s other senator, Jeff Flake, has the appearance lately of a non-Republican, angering many of the state’s constituents.

Dan Nowicki, the reporter, said McCain’s daughter Meghan, and her mother, “last week helped shoot down (sic) a dubious online report anticipating McCain’s resignation for health reasons.” He did not say why the report was “dubious.” He did later quote the senator’s wife Cindy saying McCain is doing fine and he has no intention of resigning. The daughter claimed the report was “fake news” without elaborating. Why McCain will not be representing the state, or will be living in Cornville for six months if he is “doing fine” was unexplained, or perhaps unexplainable.

Nowicki failed to respond to repeated requests for explanation of the “dubious” reports about McCain resigning, or how the Senator is fulfilling his obligations as an Arizona Senator, staying bedridden in Cornville with a condition medical experts generally refer to as incurable.
