It’s a mystery that’s lasted for 50 years and lingers still: What happened on the summer night in 1969 when a car driven by Sen. Ted Kennedy plunged off the Dike Bridge into the waters off of Martha’s Vineyard, killing his 28-year-old passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne? On July 18, 1969, Kopechne, who had worked on Sen. Robert F. Kennedy’s 1968 presidential bid, attended a reunion party with five of her fellow campaign workers, known as the “Boiler Room girls,” so named for their windowless office. The party, held at a rental cottage on the island of Chappaquiddick in Massachusetts

Esther "Lobster" Newberg, the literary super-agent and a former Boiler Room Girl, was one of the attendees at the beach party that night, and to this day I don't recall ever hearing a peep out of her about what transpired.

Anonymous sources again. Anonymous sources can say any damned thing they want, make up any story, can never question them! And I wonder why now remain anonymous at this late date with the Senator-murderer long dead? I have absolutely no feeling of credibility in this BS story. Ted was a cowardly, lying POS his whole life. The political consequences of this terrible tragedy were off the charts and so the BS cover-up had to carry-on to success or fail. Anyone with a lick of sense about reality knew full well the Senator's story was made-up by his lawyers. There was no reason at all for his actions that night except to hide his responsibility and a likely resulting manslaughter charge. The sycophantic media and the Kennedy clan all circled the wagons around the young Senator. We might have known full well what actually happened...but a lot of good it could do in that atmospehre of media lies and political cover-up.

"It’s a mystery that’s lasted for 50 years and lingers still" No it's not. The POS Teddy drove off that bridge and left a girl to die while he tried to get someone to take the rap for him. What's a mystery is how he kept getting re-elected in spite of what he had done.

The TK testimony regarding his turn onto the unpaved road simply did not match the photographs of the paved rroad and turnoff published in Life magazine. While other explanations may float around the tin foil hat club...the simple answer is that TK lied and MJK died

it’s plausible but I can’t figure out why any Of them, after realizing what had happened, would not tell. Why keep it a secret? If he didn't know she was in the back seat, that’s better than deliberately not rescuing her. Because he had gone for a drive with another woman? Why is that worse than allowing the story that he had gone for a drive with Mary jo? So I don’t believe it.

Ms. Kopechne did not drown. She was trapped in an air pocket and suffocated while waiting hopefully for Teddy to rescue her. It must have eventually dawned on her that he had fled the scene. By the time she died, she realized that the dashing scion of the Kennedy dynasty was a POS.

This is no revelation or explanation, it's old news. That theory went around almost right from the start and was designed to make Ted look good. The name of the girl who rode in the front seat was also named at the time, and she didn't have to hide behind the pseudonym Betty.

This story has been around for a while. Nothing new here. Never in my life have I been driving a car and not know who was in it with me. Teddy's problem was once his handlers cooked up the narrative he had to stick with it no matter what. If he changed it he could have been prosecuted for perjury. No autopsy was performed on Mary Jo. The Kennedy Clan got a high Catholic Church official to tell her parents that an autopsy would be a mortal sin. An autopsy could have determined if she drowned, suffocated, or was pregnant.

In the end, Ted is responsible for the death of a young woman, not his wife, that he had in his car while driving drunk. Had this been anyone else, they would have been convicted of DUI, heavily fined and hopefully spent some time in prison. Seems to me that if you are a politician, mostly democrat, sometimes republican, you can get away with just about any CRIME.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday canceled courtroom arguments scheduled for the next few weeks over two aspects of former President Donald Trump's immigration policy — a reflection of the new administration's reversal on both issues. The court granted the Justice Department's request to remove two Trump administration appeals of lower court rulings from the argument calendar, one being against the use of Pentagon money to build the southern border wall and the other against making immigrants wait in Mexico instead of the U.S. Stopping the wall project was among the first steps President Joe Biden took after he was sworn

The framework of Liz Cheney’s DeceptiCon perspective is actually turning out to be a valuable asset. By watching who steps out to defend Ms. Cheney we get a more clarified picture of who the DeceptiCons are. Liz Cheney is a walking ‘TOUCHSTONE“, a test or criteria for determining the genuine ideology of corrupt political alignment. Last night Mitch McConnell stood up on Cheney’s behalf. Today Lindsey Graham does the same. These republican names reflect politicians who are aligned with Globalism, Wall Street, and the leftist agenda of Big Government; these are the DeceptiCons.
