RIP Mary Jo KopechneSubmitted by belle on Wed, 07/15/2009 - 10:38
Saturday, July 18th marks the 40th anniversary of the the death of Mary Jo Kopechne at the hands of Senator Ladykiller, Ted Kennedy.
That was when he crashed his car with Mary Jo in it off of a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island. He escaped and left her there to slowly suffocate to death while he was off trying to save his political a**. He was never held accountable (he received a deferred 6-month sentence for leaving the scene of an accident) and the voters of MA continued to elect him to the Senate where he has caused irreparable damage to America.
BTW, if Mary Jo had survived, she would have been 68 today. What a waste of a young life.
RIP Mary Jo.
