    RICHMOND, Va. -- A Washington lobbyist sued The New York Times for $27 million Tuesday over an article that she says gave the false impression she had an affair with Sen. John McCain in 1999.

    The newspaper stood by the story.

    Vicki L. Iseman filed the defamation suit in U.S. District Court in Richmond. It also names as defendants the Times' executive editor, its Washington bureau chief and four reporters.

    Didn't want to come off as too obvious at first. Too much logic for Willow to handle when it comes to politics. :D ;)

    Unfortunately she will lose. Lots of wiggle room in that hit piece. "Sources say" and "alledgedly" CYA pretty well.

    Besides, she has no reputation. She lost that long ago when she gained the title "Lobbyist" :lol:
