What a ghoulish jerk.
“A day after a December 2017 announcement that Sen. John McCain had been hospitalized for the "normal effects" of cancer treatment, Arizona's Rep. Paul Gosar was lobbying for McCain's Senate seat.
Gosar's chief of staff, Thomas Van Flein, conveyed the northern Arizona congressman's interest in replacing McCain, R-Ariz., to Gov. Doug Ducey's then-attorney, Mike Liburdi. (snip)
"In a meeting, I'll call you back," Liburdi wrote to Gosar's chief of staff.
Gosar's chief of staff responded, "Ok! Just calling to let u know Gosar is interested in the McCain seat and he wants to talk with your boss."
Ducey, a Republican, has rebuked the behind-the-scenes jockeying for the seat. He and his staff, who have fielded questions for months about the issue, have said any discussion is "disgraceful" since McCain remains a member of the U.S. Senate.”
I’m not the biggest fan of McCain, not even in the bottom 10% really, but Jeeze, Gosar, let the man die before you start peein’ on his stuff.
