Cindy McCain apologizes after police refute claim of human trafficking

Cindy McCain, the wife of the late U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona), apologized last week after reporting a false case of human trafficking but it's not the first time she has made unsubstantiated claims about children being victimized. In testimony to the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, McCain said she witnessed "six little girls" being trafficked at casino in Arizona. She did not disclose the location but said it was "just outside of Phoenix," where a number of tribes operate facilities.
