HEAR: John McCain's Brother Makes Illegal 911 Call

Curses out operator


Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s brother, Joe McCain, called 911 in Alexandria, Va., to complain about traffic earlier this week. And when they told him that 911 was only for emergencies, he used an expletive to the operator and hung up.
Wow. And they say John McCain is a
hot head. Maybe short fuses run in the McCain family.
Here's a snippet of the transcript:
Operator: Alexandria 911, state your emergencyCaller: 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."
The operator then called the number back and left a message for Joe about how it is illegal to use a 911 number for anything other than emergencies.
Here's the best part: An outraged Joe called the operator back to complain about being read the riot act about calling 911 and got read the riot act again.
Anyway, it's priceless. Watch the video call and see if you don't think that Joe even sounds a lot like John.
