KERRY FIGHTS OFF MEDIA PROBE OF RECENT ALLEGED INFIDELITY, RIVALS PREDICT RUIN
Drudge Report ^ | 2/12/2004 | MATT DRUDGE

Posted on 02/12/2004 9:02:31 AM PST by kellynla

A frantic behind-the-scenes drama is unfolding around Sen. John Kerry and his quest to lockup the Democratic nomination for president, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal.

Intrigue surrounds a woman who recently fled the country, reportedly at the prodding of Kerry, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

A serious investigation of the woman and the nature of her relationship with Sen. John Kerry has been underway at TIME magazine, ABC NEWS, the WASHINGTON POST and the ASSOCIATED PRESS, where the woman in question once worked.

MORE

A close friend of the woman first approached a reporter late last year claiming fantastic stories -- stories that now threaten to turn the race for the presidency on its head!

In an off-the-record conversation with a dozen reporters earlier this week, General Wesley Clark plainly stated: "Kerry will implode over an intern issue." [Three reporters in attendance confirm Clark made the startling comments.]

The Kerry commotion is why Howard Dean has turned increasingly aggressive against Kerry in recent days, and is the key reason why Dean reversed his decision not to drop out of the race after Wisconsin, top campaign sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

Truth and lies aren't concerns of democrats, so please don't confuse the power of the truth with the quest for power.

"Did she get him to sign a pre-nuptal?"

Wow! I never even thought about that. I hope so. I'd love to see him on the street with a sign: WILL LEGISLATE FOR FOOD".

She certainly did. And I bet he'll regret turning down matching funds.

Exactly, hopefully the primary will now drag into the spring or summer with F'ing Kerry squeaking out a win, W then coasts back into the White House, Hopefully padding our Senate majority by 6 or 8 Republicans.

But if Ms. Heinz dumps him, how is he going to repay the $6mil mortgage back. $300K+ monthly payments on this 100k+ yearly salary? He said he would pay it back with out her help.

I agree. I've long thought Edwards would be the most dangerous should he get the nomination. Every time I see him I think, "My gosh, he thinks he's JFK!"

Yeppers...From the heavy snow of Mena...down to plane loads of goodies back to El Salvador & Nicaragua...From New Orleans to the White House..

Along the way a freight train load of dead people (some right there in the White House) who dared to get in the way....

So powerfull even stonewalled a Republican lead investigation that ignored Mena all the players...(including trading US secrets to China)...and instead concentrated on abusing cigars
with a chubby bimbo...

No one gets in ...without the rubber stamp of the Clintons and ALL their enablers...
The good ship Kerry pop...our "not too swift" Boat commander was bound to get torpedoed
and he had to know it....they all did...

Will Edwards be next?......the two party cabal..is having a ball...while Americans get to choose between the front men...
imo

Doesn't anyone find it troubling that Clark, a Clinton plant, basically knew about this- which means that more than likely, the Clintons are involved in a story about sex scandal?!?!?! The irony is just too damn ironic! The possibility of the Clintons *revealing* a sex scandal instead of trying to hide one? Doesn't anyone else find this whole thing just odd?

re: pipsqueak ambulance chaser.

I've always thought that he'd be the one we'd have to beat, and that it would be hard.

He's got connections and donations from every personal injury law firm around--and I'll bet they supply him with more than money.

If they get a divorce or Teresa dies, all the money goes to Teresa Heinz children.

I wonder how Jon Heinz would feel if he was alive today.
To see his Ex Wife married to a Democrat who will become the Democratic Nominee.

"There isn't a sin that Kerry can commit for him to lose support in this craven political process."

Yes there is. The sin of not being able to beat Dubya. If the 'rats are certain he can't win they'll drop him like a good habit. (They're 'rats, remember?)

Even if this intern story is True, the Democrats will still want Kerry over Dean.
Dean has no chance of beating Bush, while Kerry has a chance.

Look at 92, when the allegations came out against Clinton. Clinton still won the election.

This is what I dont understand. John Heinz was a top Republican senator. I heard Al Damato on the radio last week. He was very friendly with Teresa and John Heinz.
He was saying when he knew Teresa, she was a staunch Republican.
So how did this woman marry a Democrat and become a Democrat. I'm not buying the story she was lonely after John Heinz was killed in the place crash in 91. Any woman thats worth a billion dollars. Trust me, guys will be falling all over her. (Young and old)

I don't know if there was a pre-nup, but he might have some problems getting cooperation from her. Her money could still come in handy.

If these charges are found to be true, Kerry is done.

I smell the Clintons

This sets the table for the DNC to go the Democrat Party Convention without a "popular" candidate. Think that this would not be an opportune time to start a movement to draft Hillary Clinton as the "savior" of the Democrat Party?

She would not have had to campaign in the primaries and have the other Democrat hopefuls drag her through the mud in front of the nation and it saved her from having to spend her war chest on campaigning.

Further, starting to break: 12:35 p.m. Eastern Time, 12 February:

"Will Press Pounce on Drudge's Kerry Rumor? By E&P Staff Published: February 12, 2004 NEW YORK Matt Drudge's Web site, which first broke allegations about President Bill Clinton's dalliance with a White House intern in 1998, is at it again. Late this morning, DrudgeReport.com alleged that a new scandal was about to rock the campaign of Democratic frontrunner John Kerry: some sort of purported recent marital "infidelity" that involved a woman who once worked for the Associated Press, and has now supposedly "fled the country." According to the site, this story was being investigated by the AP, The Washington Post, Time magazine and ABC network. Reached by E&P for comment, AP spokesman Jack Stokes said, "We simply don't comment on stories we are pursuing or not pursuing." It also declared that General Wesley Clark, in an off-the-record chat with reporters earlier this week, predicted that the Kerry campaign would soon implode due to an "intern." It would seem strange, however, if he really believed that, that he would drop out of the race, as he did yesterday. The site added, however, that the Kerry rumor helped explain why Howard Dean did stay in the race and has been increasingly aggressive in his attacks on Kerry this week. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- E&P Staff"

OK, deep breath here...

has this been confirmed, or has the Drudge site been hijacked?

The reason I ask is that all the normal popups that I get on Drudge are coming up, but are blank. The ad link at the top is showing a "page cannot be displayed" error....

Has this been probed outside of Drudge on any other reputable sites?

Urgent Wire Flash To All Media Outlets: 1. Go back to the "Dean Is Really A Conservative" stories; Drop all Dean screaming stories, anyone can make a mistake. 2. Start figuring out where Edwards gets the experience to be President (Hurry!) 3. Ask the Hildabeast for permission on 1 and 2, and don't F with her if she looks pissed.

The Clintons care only about themselves. Unless Kerry invites HRC to be his VP, the Clintons want Kerry to lose so Hillary can run in 2008. If Kerry wins in 2004, HRC can't run for the Presidency until 2012, at which point she'll be 65 years old. The CLintons backed Wesley Clark in the first place because they knew this weirdo would fail. There's every reason to believe that Clark made these remarks about Kerry and the intern with full (backstage) approval from the CLintons. Yes, this country's sexual morals are in the toilet. However, the response to Janet Jackson at the SUper Bowl is indicative of a growing backlash against sleaze. This backlash, coupled with possible sabotage from Kerry's wife if this story breaks, will lead to Kerry's meltdown. And Kerry's meltdown would position HRC to run in 2008.

Paging Pres.. uh Senator Clinton. Those FBI files are coming in real handy. First the NYT writes an editorial about Kerry special interest money, then the Hanoi Jane picture starts floating around and now this. When will the other Dems learn that nobody gets in the way of the Clinton's plan?

I would suggest Kerry stay off of small, private planes.
