Maybe She Can Get Maureen Dowd as Her Personal Valet

Vicky Iseman became a household name when the New York Times printed a thinly-sourced front page piece that walked right up to the edge of accusing her of having an affair with John McCain.

Now she’s going for the jugular.

Washington lobbyist Vicki L. Iseman has filed a $27 million defamation lawsuit against The New York Times for a February article about Iseman and her relationship with Sen. John McCain.

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court in Richmond on Tuesday, alleges the article falsely communicated that Iseman and McCain had an illicit “romantic” relationship in 1999 when he was chair of the Senate Commerce Committee and she was a lobbyist representing clients before Congress…

Perhaps the Times can just offer her the Boston Globe and a couple million on the side. It’ll be cheaper for them in the end.
