McCain's Brother Calls 911 to Complain About Traffic

Sorry if this is a repost

October 24, 2008

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- While John McCain has been talking up 'Joe the Plumber' on the campaign trail, 'Joe the Brother' has caused some embarrassment for the GOP presidential nominee.

Authorities in Alexandria, Virginia have released a 911 call that appears to have John McCain's brother Joe calling to complain about being stuck in traffic.

"It's not an emergency, but do you know why on one side of the damn drawbridge of 95 traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet there's traffic coming the other way?" Joe McCain says during the recorded call.

The 911 operator responds, "Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic?" Joe then says, "(expletive) you" and hangs up.

The call was apparently so outrageous that the 911 operator called back and left a message on a voicemail that appeared to belong to Joe McCain.

"Hi this is Joe McCain. I can't take this message now because I'm involved in a very (inaudible) important political project."

But that wasn't all. McCain then called 911 again to complain about the message the operator left him warning that using 911 in non-emergency situations is against the law.

"Somebody gave me this riot act about the violation of police," McCain says.

"911 is to be used for emergencies only, not just because you're sitting in traffic," the operator tells him.
