Brian over at Bearing Drift has this story about a monument to the late Senator Teddy Kennedy.
On July 19, 2009 the 40th anniversary of the Chappaquiddick “incident” passed with hardly a notice by the press. Kennedy was a cowardly, drunken womanizer and the results of his actions cost Mary Jo Kopechne her life.
On the anniversary of this tragedy, Virginia Right! wrote:
Ted Kennedy, known for his wild partying and excessive drinking, left a party for the “Boiler Room Girls” that had helped his brother Bobby’s Presidential campaign, and apparently swam to safety and went home, abandoning his car and Kopechne’s body and failing to call police.
Kennedy eventually pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and was given a two month suspended sentence.
The picture with this post and that of last July are the only monuments to Ted Kennedy’s life that are necessary. This was a rich person that played the system and literally got away with murder.
Memorializing this monster with tax dollars does nothing more than condone murder.
