..or at least she used to be. Now, I know there’s gotta be some chronic abuse of pharmaceuticals amongst the readers of Nuclear Rays, but I doubt y’all steal from charities to do it.
Cindy’s biggest claim to fame is in 1989 she developed an addiction to percocet and vicodin, two powerful morphine based pain killers. In 1993 she was caught stealing percocet from supply of the American Voluntary Medical Team, a charity she founded to provide health care and medications to war victims in underdeveloped nations. The DEA was investigated her and with the intervention of her well connected parents and McCain himself, Cindy got off the hook with the usual 90 day trip to the posh rehab. The American Voluntary Medical Team folded shortly after it ceased to be a supply point for Cindy’s opiate habit.
The DEA agreed to keep Cindy’s little misadventure in Lala Land from the public, but then Cindy went and terminated the guy who reported her to the DEA and the details of Cindy’s sordid past as a suburban trophy wife junkie all came out when the fired guy filed a wrongful termination suit against Cindy.
A few weeks after Cindy came clean about her addiction the Variety Club cancelled her Humanitarian of the Year Award.

Stealing pills from war victims is beyond unpatriotic, it’s immoral, evil, and unnecessary–if you need pills, just ask Rush Limbaugh! He’s got the good stuff. The fact that she folded her charity so easily and fired the staffer who reported her only prove that she’s a selfish and dumb opportunist. That doesn’t necessarily mean she’ll have a negative effect on John McCain’s presidency, but she doesn’t need to–that flip-flopping Bush hugger is negative enough.
P.S. Thanks to The Talent Show for clueing me in on this.
