Joe McCain, the brother of John McCain, “said Friday he’ll withdraw from campaign activities after calling 911 to complain about traffic.” McCain called 911 in Alexandria, VA, and “used an expletive to the operator and hung up.” Listen to the call:

“I feel terrible about having hurt the campaign over this incident,” he said. “I won’t be doing any more campaigning because of that.”
