I found getting divorced a super-painful process." - Sen. John F. Kerry

Election night, Nov. 7, 1982, was a star turn for John F. Kerry, the brash anti-Vietnam War activist turned crime-fighting prosecutor. Just 38, Kerry basked in the glow of Michael S. Dukakis' gubernatorial victory, sharing the ticket as lieutenant governor.

'Kerry, who denied any wrongdoing, has branded the years from 1982 to 1988 during his separation and before his divorce as his ``gypsy period,'' hopping from apartment to apartment and sleeping in guest rooms so he could be ``Mr. Mom'' for his daughters.

``Not fun, not easy, but not so abnormal for someone who is in the middle of a divorce,'' Kerry said during his 1996 re-election race against former Gov. William Weld when the issue surfaced.

As lieutenant governor, Kerry leased cars from North Shore auto dealer Bob Brest without making payments for 16 months until a reporter asked about the billing lapse.

As a senator, Kerry drew fire for his free use for three months of the $8,000-per-month Washington waterfront luxury apartment owned by Robert S. Farmer, who was vice president of Cassidy and Associates, a high-powered Washington lobbying firm. Kerry insisted he stayed only a few nights.'

kerry, testimony before Congress, 22 April, 1971, kerry says, "I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government,...."*(not on any authorised mission by the U.S. Government or by the U.S. military, kerry and his VVAW group meets and negotiates with the then enemy).

*excerpted from the Official U.S. Congressional Record dated 22 April, 1971.

"revamp the U.S. military", read as kerry's plan to PURGE the U.S. Military of Pro U.S. Military Veterans and Republicans, make it totally dependant on U.N. forces support for any significant achievement capable military(similar to france,germany, etc.), Turn home based U.S. Armed Forces, Intelligence agencies and Law Enforcement agencies into the democratic party's{including CPUSA and DSA} Praetorian Guard!!!!

kerry stabbed U.S. in the back continually since his return from Viet Nam. How much more backstabbing from this 22 April, 1971 testimony(self confessed traitor) before Congress that he(kerry) met with the then enemy in Paris, are we supposed to stand????

Sometimes he resorted to crashing with family, friends or ex-law partner and longtime girlfriend Roanne Sragow, who now serves as a Massachusetts district court judge.

"Crashing"? Try "engaging in an adulterous relationship," according to the Times (U.K.) and the Boston Herald.

This idiot couldn't make ends meet on 90 grand back in the 80s when that was considered big money. True, some divorced men may stay with a friend or relative while separated, but a 6-year "gyspy period" for a man in his late 30s is a joke. And this guy was a senator....crashing on people's sofas.

Yeah, let's hand our national security over to him.

from thr Times UK

'Among the Democrat frontrunner’s girlfriends was a go-getting young British reporter, Emma Gilbey, who is now married to the executive editor of The New York Times.'

Now isn't that coincidental?

Might help explain today's story on Sandy the Klepto being on page 17, down on the bottom, living in a van by the side of the river....

There always seem to be lots of dots to connect, whether from the Clintons to Kerry, or Kerry to the sycophantic media.
