"The story traces then-presidential contender and Arizona Senator John McCain's ties to the liquor industry, vis a vis his wife, Cindy Hensley McCain and her father, Jim Hensley. The Hensly liquor money funded McCain's first run for Congress in 1982, and continues to fund him, both personally and professionally. The story examines those links, from Cindy's father's history as a bootlegger to John McCain's history as chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee - where he's repeatedly turned his back on concerns about the liquor industry."
