Those darn Kennedy's are at it again. Once again- A Kennedy was drinking and crashed his car. And once again- mysteriously, the Kennedy will get away with it.
WASHINGTON - Rep. Patrick Kennedy crashed his car near the Capitol early Thursday, and a police official said he appeared intoxicated. Kennedy said he had taken sleep medication and a prescription anti-nausea drug that can cause drowsiness.
Kennedy, D-R.I., addressed the issue after a spate of news reports. His initial statement said: “I consumed no alcohol prior to the incident.“’
Later, however, he issued a longer statement saying the attending physician for Congress had prescribed Phenergan on Tuesday to treat Kennedy’s gastroenteritis.
Someone should tell Kennedy that the drug excuse is not any better than the alcohol excuse.
Kennedy, the son of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., and his staff declined to discuss any further details of the accident. The congressman took part in House votes Thursday.
I guess the apple did not fall far from the tree, 'eh Senator Teddy?????
Baird wrote McGaffin that two sergeants who responded to the accident conferred with the watch commander and were ordered to leave the scene.
Of course, sticking with the true Kennedy tradition, the Congressman gets away with it.
