Timed for less exposure
As Americans kick off the first holiday weekend of the summer today, Sen. John McCain will release 400 pages of his medical records to a handpicked group of reporters who can neither photocopy nor keep the documents, illustrating the sensitivity the campaign places on the 71-year-old candidate’s age and health.
For more than a year, the four-term senator has repeatedly promised to release his recent medical records, but has not yet done so, reports the Washington Times.
Update: Here are McCain’s medical records, released by his Mayo Clinic team. Reading the report, it sounds as though the doctors are working dual positions at Mayo and as campaign staffers.
