While Republican Presidential candidate John McCain‘s been ducking reported infidelity claims, there’s no denying his cheatin’ ways with first wife, Carol – the woman who waited for him when he was a P.O.W.

McCain met Carol, a former swimsuit model, when he was attending Annapolis during the 1950s. At the time, she was married to another cadet with whom she had two children.

After being freed by the Viet Cong, McCain discovered Carol had been disfigured in a serious car accident.

"When he saw  Carol was not the beauty he left behind, he started running around on her,"  Ted Sampley, a Special Forces Viet Nam vet and McCain pal said.

"Eventually, he met Cindy, and she was young and beautiful and very wealthy."

The ex-Mrs. McCain, Carol, now 70, evidently has no complaints.

According to the Britain’s Mail,  Johnny Mac agreed to pay for Carol’s medical care for the rest of her life — in exchange for a divorce.
