38 years ago, Edward "Ted" Kennedy didn't save a drowning woman by the name of Mary Jo Kopechne. Kennedy, who drove off a bridge and into a pond with Kopechne after a party, waited until his BAC level was back in the normal range before calling for help. Irony, huh? Kennedy with an array of political connections was able to escape without any criminal punishment. The death of Kopechne was ruled an accidental drowning.
Kennedy is a staunch advocate of abortion and gay marriage. His influence has remained steady in Massachusetts despite the drowning scandal, which is known as the Chappaquiddick incident. Because of his support on the issue, he is not in good standing with his Church.
Ah, that is, ah, all I have in, ah, terms of speaking about Ted, ah, Kennedy.
Random, yes? I don't have a book next to me called "How to talk to a Liberal (if you have to)" next to me for nothing.
