Kennedy Tribute Coincides With Chappaquiddick Anniversary

By Sarah Junk
CNSNews.com Correspondent
July 23, 2004

(CNSNews.com) - Democrats will honor Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy next week with a tribute that falls at the same time as the 35th anniversary of Kennedy's guilty plea for his involvement in the drowning death of Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick.

It was on July 25, 1969, that the 37-year-old Kennedy pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of the accident that killed Kopechne, a 28-year-old former aide to Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, Ted's older brother.

The crash took place a week earlier when Kennedy was driving Kopechne back from a raucous party on Chappaquiddick Island. The Massachusetts senator drove the car off a bridge and into a pond, escaping without serious injuries, but unable to save Kopechne.

Kennedy denied that he was under the influence of alcohol. He also explained his timeline of events. Kennedy's story didn't exactly correspond with other accounts of that evening.

Kennedy's explanation cast a shadow over his presidential aspirations, especially since evidence existed that suggested Kopechne could have been saved if the incident had been reported to police.

He did add something to the community of common language.

Txag, this isn't a great idea but a brilliant idea. Maybe John Fairy may want a "free ride" also. May as well take what he wants to give. The "Free Ride".

Man you guys can hold a grudge for a long time....this was 1969. It's not like his wife was driving a car, ran a stop sign and killed a young girl! This was an accident, he was underwater and had to think of saving himself first. Wasnt any reason to have 2 drownings that night.

Boy Michelle, the more you post, the more I like you! I may not agree with you, but you definately have some hot sports opinions!!!! :heart:

The "grudge" is held because of the double standard of the media. Teddy's cover-up made Nixon look like a piker. Democrats and their love feast with Kennedy, Al Sharpton, and the guy that put himself in for purple hearts is enough to make most people sick.
