4. wasn't she a staffer who 'accidentaly' destroyed important papers
and wasn't that when she and McCain started their affair.

Wasn't the investigation into her role her excuse that led to her drug problem and theft of drugs?
yup found it

In 1989, Cindy McCain became addicted to opioid painkillers such as Percocet and Vicodin,<29> which she initially took to alleviate pain following two spinal surgeries for ruptured discs<30><31> and to ease emotional stress during the Keating Five scandal,<29> which involved her as a bookkeeper who had difficulty finding receipts.<16> The addiction progressed to where she resorted to stealing drugs from her own AVMT.<30> During 1992, Tom Gosinski, the director of government and international affairs for AVMT, discovered her drug theft.<32> Subsequently in 1992, her parents staged an intervention to force her to get help;<16> she told her husband about her problem, attended a drug treatment facility, began outpatient sessions, and ended her three years of active addiction.<29> A hysterectomy in 1993 resolved her back pain.<29><31>
