More bad news for the Kennedys: Kerry Kennedy, the ex-wife of Gov. Cuomo and daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, was arrested Friday morning on drug-related charges.

Kennedy was nabbed by State Police after taking off following a collision with a tractor-trailer on I-684 in the town of North Castle in Westchester County.

State Police said they found Kennedy, 52, sitting behind the wheel of her disabled 2008 Lexus RS 350 on state Route 22. The car had sustained damage, including a flat tire.

An investigation is said to have found Kennedy had been operating the car while her ability was impaired by drugs.

Not another Kennedy? Who else?

Isn’t the anniversary of Chappaquidick coming up? Perhaps she was just getting in shape for it.

The Kennedy Family - the Democrat’s equivalent of the Gotti Family!

Update: Kennedy spokesman Ken Sunshine said in a statement, “Kerry Kennedy voluntarily took breathalyzer, blood and urine tests – all of which showed no drugs or alcohol whatsoever in her system. The charges were filed before the test results were available.”

According to WABC in NY, Kennedy told the officers she had taken an ambien — a powerful prescription sleeping pill.

Presumably, non-morons are excluded from journalism. There is no such thing as a “Lexus RS 350”. Maybe the national car of affluent middle-class suburbs is meant, the Lexus RX350.

Pathetic. 52 years old and getting stoned behind the wheel of a luxury car she didn't do anything to pay for.

I wonder if Joe and Rose Kennedy knew that their loins would produce so many generations of losers and no-accounts. Spoiled offspring who never had to work an honest day in their lives, knowing that they had multi-million dollar trust funds coming due to them.

Not that Joseph Kennedy Sr. was anything close to being an honest and scrupulous businessman or anything, but he did earn his own money so one can't begrudge him his lavish lifestyle and high living.

His kids and grandkids though...with very few exceptions, nothing but a bunch of spoiled, arrogant, overprivileged brats who either sponged off trust funds or U.S. taxpayers.

I guess that's the curse of being a self-made rich person. Most of your kids will grow up with no work ethic and no appreciation of the hard work you did to give them the lifestyle that they take for granted.

There's an old saying regarding wills that goes something like this: "Give your children enough to do something with their lives (i.e. a college education) but not so much that they do nothing at all."

They should also consider working more. They seem to have too much leisure time on their hands.

“She claimed Ambien.”

If proven true, I will give her a break. I took it. It caused me to walk in my sleep. Almost burnt down my house whilst on it. A cop friend said he’d pulled over people while driving on Ambien. They were clueless to what was happening. Not a good drug. A good history must be done before it is prescribed.

Them Kennedy’s love their Ambien

Kennedy’s Crash Highlights Dangers of Ambien

May 5, 2006

After he smashed his Ford Mustang into a barrier near Capitol Hill early Thursday morning, Rhode Island Rep. Patrick Kennedy released a statement, saying that he had been disoriented by two prescription medications he had taken.

One of which was Ambien, a prescription sleep aid.

While Kennedy said he was “disoriented” in his statement, police officers described him as “intoxicated.”

How could using Ambien, the nation’s most widely used sleep aid, explain his behavior?

Kennedy’s situation echoes a growing trend, police and toxicologists say. In some states, Ambien has made it onto the lists of the Top 10 drugs found in impaired motorists.

One doctor questioned Kennedy’s decision to get behind the wheel with two prescription drugs in his system.

“To get in a car in the first place was dangerous,”

I think that Patches ran with the Ambien defense,when he crashed his car into a barricade at the Capitol Building. Hey, the press seemed satisfied then, why not dust it off and use it again?

Key omission: through bootlegging and insider trading That was your omission. I already mentioned in the reply you excerpted above that Joe Sr. was not a "honest or scrupulous" businessman. But you decided to excerpt my reply (like CBS) to make it seem like I said something else.

I wonder who her Godfather is. I only ask because her sister’s (Kathleen Kennedy Townsend) Godfather was Joe McCarthy, which I always found interesting. It turns out that Robert and John were both huge fans of McCarthy, Robert tried to get hired by him. (Seems that some democrats back then didn’t like communism, as hard as that is believe these days)
