Joe McCain, brother of Republican presidential candidate John McCain, has withdrawn from campaign activities after he called 911 over a traffic jam then proceeded to curse the operator, saying "(Expletive) you," then proceeded to hang up the phone.
He apologized, saying that the 911 call is "the biggest mistake I will ever make in my life at least in politics". This is the 2nd apology this month for Joe, the first being when he called Alexandria and Arlington County, Va., "communist country".
McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds had this to say: "Joe recognizes his mistake and has apologized. We are moving on”. Joe McCain clarified that the decision to step aside from the presidential campaign was his and his alone.
