Cops: Kennedy Was Under Influence - May 5, 2006
OK, here's what we know so far.... he was stumbling, reddened eyes and slurred speech. He says he wasn't drinking and was on the way to a vote ( know thy Constitution ). Now it was the pills. So one way or the other, he claimed he was on his way to vote while under the influence?
Here's how this will pan out. He's exposed and has to back down from his pre-conditioned ( even while drunk ) excuses. Eventually he goes and confesses of 'lapses of judgment' and feigns his willingness to resign his office but leaves it up to the good people Rhode Island to decide. He then goes to the media preaching about the ills of drink, drugs and driving.
Why do I say this.... it's happened before... but this time nobody died.
Update: Oh the tangled webs we weave...
" Some time around 2:45am, I drove the few blocks to the Capitol Complex believing I needed to vote. Apparently, I was disoriented from the medication."
