Kerry Kennedy invokes dadís death in drugged-driving defense
NY Post ^ | 2/27/14 | Andrea Peyser

Posted on 02/27/2014 2:12:03 AM PST by Libloather

She’s a mom, a human-rights leader — oh, and another fatherless Kennedy.

Testifying in her own defense at her drugged driving trial Wednesday, Kerry Kennedy wasted little time before playing the “Daddy” card.

“Daddy was the attorney general during the civil rights movement and then a senator,” the 54-year-old testified, supposedly explaining why she grew up in Virginia, but coyly invoking the memory of her slain father, Sen Robert F. Kennedy.

Yeah, Howie Carr said yesterday that “she waved the bloody shirt” in the courtroom.

Despicable nest of vipers.

I thought she pled guilty to some lesser offense to avoid the trial. What happened?

I’d call her another waste of life named Kennedy but she’s worse than that — she’s dangerous and may end up killing someone when she gets off easy from this because of who she is.

Kennedy claimed that after 10 years of taking Ambien, she had no idea how fast the drug makes her drowsy.

Not possible, in my opinion, unless over the ten-year period she's always taken Ambien and gone directly to bed.

“human rights leader”? All the Kennedy’s do is hang out at the compound, booze and drug it up and give themselves BS titles.

The nanny state of MA should step in and pass a law banning Ambien for anyone with Kennedy genes. It seems every time one of them is arrested, they use Ambien as their excuse.

This sideshow is so ridiculous. I mean she will get a fine and probably have to do community service at most even if found guilty. Maybe have to do a treatment center. What the heck does she think is going to happen. She mentioned her reputation. I doubt anybody will change their minds about her because of this. They either find her interesting or they don’t like her. I don’t understand this one bit.

Why do people agree take mind and pain scripts so easy? I avoid them at all cost. Legal or not, drugs rewire your brain and affect all your organs and bodily functions.

I attended that court hearing in Connecticut last spring in which Michael Skakil was seeking a new trial.During his testimony he spoke of the animosity that the Kennedys and the Skakils have for each other these days.Of course it was easy to tell when Michael was lying...his lips were moving.

The Kennedy name is a generation away from being unrecognizable.

I know who she is; another low-life dreg from the low end of the gene pool. Then again, that is one of the definitions of a democrat.

The arrongance of our entiltled class knows no bounds. If I were on the jury I'd probably be inclined to take away her license and give her community service. That self-serving whining would ruin it. She would've been GONE when she brought of the "she's a Kennedy" bit. Jail time, princess.

Is our elite so out of touch that they don't know that we're fed up with people who don't play by the same rules? It hasn't turned out well throughout history or currently in other countries when that happens.

She doesn't want that. She apparently had the opportunity to plead to a lesser offense but did not want to lose her license for six months. She wants a NOT GUILTY! based on who she is period.

I am sure she is offended by the fact that she has to go through this. After all, she IS a Kennedy. Unfortunately, the author of the article describes the six man jury as being starstruck. Geez, this country is lost.

Over 45 years later and she plays the dead Kennedy card! Some people! My gold fish died last week, wonder if I can use that to get out of a speeding ticket?

Well, after all what she did is child’s play compared to Unca Teddy. He killed a woman and got away with it. /s

Ah, yes. The old “Do-you-know-who-I-am?” defense.
That’s the second time I’ve fallen for that this month.
