Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D - R.I.) who says it was the pills?
Or the Hawk 'n' Dove tavern employee who says Kennedy "was drinking," and the adjoining Tune Inn tavern bartender who says Kennedy was in the Hawk 'n' Dove that night?
And the Capitol police who say they spotted Kennedy’s Mustang swerving with its lights off, his car narrowly missed a police cruiser before slamming into a security barricade, and when Kennedy exited the vehicle he was observed to be staggering?
And what do you think about the police brass who intervened and blocked attempts to give Kennedy sobriety tests?
And in researching for this post, I found that Kennedy was involved in a March 26, 2000 incident where "a videotape capture[d] Kennedy pushing a 58-year-old airport security guard backward and bumping the metal detector archway at Los Angeles International Airport. The catalyst apparently was that his luggage was too big for carry-on and he was disturbed the guard did not recognize him." A fine example for Cynthia McKinney!
The Democratic Party, as represented by Patrick Kennedy, Cynthia McKinney (D - Ga.), Alan Mollohan (D - W.Va.) and William Jefferson (D - La.).
Poised to lead in 2006. Yeah, right.
