    Billionaire investor Warren Buffett is dipping into the ketchup business as part of $23.3 billion deal to buy the Heinz ketchup company. H.J. Heinz Co. says it’s the largest deal ever in the food industry. The company, based in Pittsburgh, also makes Classico spaghetti sauces, Ore-Ida potatoes and Smart Ones frozen meals. Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway and its partner on the deal—3G Capital, the investment firm that bought Burger King in 2010—say Heinz will remain headquartered in Pittsburgh. Heinz CEO William Johnson said in a statement that the company “will have an opportunity to drive further growth” as a private enterprise....
  • Teresa Heinz Bankrolling Hillary Clinton

    Teresa Heinz Bankrolling Hillary Clinton Billionaire ketchup queen Teresa Heinz is helping to bankroll Hillary Clinton's Senate reelection race with a contribution that Mrs. Clinton will be able to use when she runs for president in 2008 - against John Kerry. It's not clear whether Mrs. Heinz's $2,100 maximum donation signals a rift within the Kerry household. But while Sen. Kerry has made his 2008 intentions apparent, his wife has been more circumspect of late. "We’ll know by the end of the year," she said in January, when asked whether her husband would rule out another presidential bid. Gossip maven...

    PHILADELPHIA - A lawsuit filed by Teresa Heinz Kerry after her first husband, U.S. Sen. John Heinz, died in a midair collision in 1991 was settled for $15 million, according to newly unsealed court records. Last year, attorneys for The Philadelphia Inquirer sought to unseal the settlement papers when U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., ran for president; Kerry married Heinz's widow in 1995. At first, attorneys for the Heinz estate tried to prevent the Montgomery County Court records from being unsealed, citing the family's need for security and privacy. In October 2004, Montgomery County Judge Paul Tressler unsealed portions of...

    W Ketchup a nonpartisan flavor By Isaac Wolf THE WASHINGTON TIMES Published June 26, 2004 A saucy new dipping sauce billing itself as "America's Ketchup" hopes to cash in on the Heinz-John Kerry connection. "Choose Heinz and you're supporting Teresa [Heinz Kerry] and her husband's Gulfstream Jet, and liberal causes such as [Massachusetts Sen. John] Kerry for President," reads the Web site for W Ketchup, which started selling June 14. "You don't support Democrats. Why should your ketchup?" W Ketchup focuses on themes of patriotism -- its label combines an American flag, a bald eagle and a picture of George...

Alex Poller By BRIAN FLYNNin New YorkTHIS is the girl at the centre of a sex scandal that threatens Democratic front-runner John Kerry’s run for the White House.

    With Matt Drudge’s recent revelation that John Kerry is as faithful to his second wife as he was to his old Vietnam “brothers,” the senator’s presidential campaign may depend more than ever on the actions of his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry. While the mainstream media has thus far overlooked the alleged infidelity, media outlets have also overlooked a far more important story: The former Mrs. John Heinz is also in bed – financially – with the radical Left. Teresa Heinz Kerry has financed the secretive Tides Foundation to the tune of more than $4 million over the years. The Tides...

    The Drudge Report is reporting that John F. Kerry, democrat presidential candidate flavor of the moment, allegedly had a recent affair with a young intern. Yawn. We know that democrats don’t mind dalliance, not from the JFK for the twentieth century, or Slick Willie in the room off the Oval Office, and probably won’t – if Wesley Clark’s off-the-record statement to twelve journalists turns out to be true – from the JFK for the new century. What I’m wondering is how Teresa Heinz, she of the 600 million ketchup dollars, and not a little pride, will take it. Will she...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - Backed by a 500 million dollar inheritance, Teresa Heinz Kerry brings spontaneity and outspoken life to the sometimes leaden presidential campaign of her level-headed husband John Kerry (news - web sites). No problem admitting to using botox, no problem to championing women's and environmental causes that would certainly annoy the current occupant of the White House. The heir to the Heinz ketchup and soup fortune -- born in Mozambique and brought up in South Africa -- has crossed the US political frontier to throw herself into her husband's quest for the Democratic nomination to carry the party...

Wade decision that legalized abortion.</p> <p>"I am prepared to filibuster, if necessary, any Supreme Court nominee who would turn back the clock on a woman's right to choose or the constitutional right to privacy, on civil rights and individual liberties and on the laws protecting workers and the environment," Kerry said in remarks prepared for delivery via satellite at a meeting of Democratic party officials in St. Paul, Minn.</p>
