A Phoenix woman dropped as a political fundraiser for U.S. Sen. John McCain's re-election campaign seven months ago after being arrested on suspicion of drug possession has pleaded guilty to one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Emily Pitha entered her plea Tuesday in Maricopa County Superior Court.  She's scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 8 and expected to get probation.
A county grand jury later indicted Pitha.
The McCain campaign terminated its relationship with Pitha after her arrest.
