The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree
The indefatigable Michelle Malkin and Boston talk radio icon Howie Carr have discovered that Congressman Kennedy had a second accident, in Rhode Island, two weeks ago.
For those keeping track, it's been almost 24 hours since the second wreck. Still no statement from Congressman Kennedy, or his press office in D.C. Where's the MSM outrage?
Roll Call and Fox News are reporting that Congressman Patrick Kennedy, D-RI, was involved in a traffic "incident" on Capitol Hill early today. According to FNC correspondent Steve Centanni, Congressman Kennedy, the son of Senator Ted Kennedy, was driving with his lights off around 2:45 am, when he narrowly avoided a Capitol Police cruiser, and collided with a security barrier. Sources tell Roll Call that the younger Kennedy was staggering when he emerged from the car. However, officers on the scene were not allowed to administer a sobriety test. Supervisory officers eventually arrived on the scene and gave the Congressman a ride home. Police union representatives have asked their superiors to let officers complete their investigation.
Hey, at least he wasn't driving across a bridge. And apparently, no female "companions" were along for the ride.
