McCain was 'good kisser' says former Brazilian lover





Brazilian former model and ballerina has described her week-long affair with John McCain when he docked in Rio de Janeiro as a young sailor in 1957.

Maria Gracinda Teixeira, 77, described the Republican presidential nominee as romantic and a "good kisser".

In a 1999 autobiography, Faith of My Fathers, Mr McCain fondly related his whirlwind passion for the beautiful Brazilian, but did not reveal her name.

"We danced on the terrace overlooking the bay until 1am, when I felt her cheek was moist," he wrote. "'What's the matter?' I asked. 'I'll never see you again,' she replied."

Ms Teixeira, who was tracked down by Brazilian reporters, said she was thrilled the Arizona senator had written about her.

"We met because I used to have lunch near the docks," she said. "He is so cute. But I never imagined he would write about me, that was a surprise."
