Kennedy: Just a Bad Driver
Here’s Patrick Kennedy’s police statement from the last time he slammed his car into something. (Photo) Which was, of course, 3 weeks ago. He was pulling into a CVS into oncoming traffic and was broadsided, but we didn’t get that from the statment, which seems to maybe be about pixies? Trowels? We can’t actually read it. How does this guy co-sponsor bills?
But that was three weeks ago. As we learned today, if you’re a drunk-drivin’ Congressman and you smash into something down here in DC, and not in lame ol’ Rhode Island, the cops will drive you home and not, like, test you or anything. Which is, really, above and beyond the call of duty, guys. That kind of treatment? He must’ve been wearing his members’ pin.
