62-year-old Senator Mike Johanns is fighting off rumors that he’s not healthy.
A spokesperson for Johanns tells Nebraska Watchdog that speculation on an internet blog that Johanns is suffering from “the c-word” is untrue.
“Senator Johanns absolutely does not have cancer,” says Natalie Krings. “He’s healthy.”
Tuesday the Objective Conservative wrote, ”Word continues to circulate around Lincoln that U.S. Senator Mike Johanns is sick. We’ve reported that a couple of months ago. The ‘c-word’ was mentioned to us today.”
In 2009, shortly after Johanns took office, a spot was found on his left lung. Doctors removed part of the lung and said they found no signs of cancer.
