As we discussed, I am enclosing copies of checks which Mrs. McCain wrote to American Continental Corporation in 1986 to reimburse ACC for flights taken by Senator McCain. I just became aware of these checks today.
It appears that these checks were written to reimburse ACC for the flight taken April 4, 1985 by Senator McCain from Washington, D.C. to Phoenix and for the flight taken August 29, 1985 by Senator McCain from Miamt to Phoenix. Because I was not aware of these checks at the time that we corresponded back in May of this year, these flights were also included on the schedule for which Senator McCain made reimbursement to ACC in May of 1989. Therefore, it appears that Senator McCain reimbursed ACC twice for those two flights. Because of our bankruptcy, we will encounter some difficulty in arranging for reimbursement at this point. However, if the Senator would like to be reimbursed, please let me know and I will see what we can do. I apologize for any inconvenience delayed discovery of these two checks may have caused. Please let me know if you have any questions concerning this.
Very truly yours,
David E. Stevens
