Stop Or My Wife Will Bust Out The Checkbook!

| No Comments

Last Sunday in Parade, a letter in Walter Scott's Personality Parade asked if Teresa Heinz Kerry planned to use her fortune to help her husband, Democratic Senator John Kerry, in his Presidential campaign. What makes the question interesting is the source of her wealth--she inherited half a billion when her first husband, Republican Senator John Heinz, died in a 1991 plane crash. Her response:

"I would never spend family money on any campaign unless the honor of John's name was attacked. If a political rival launched a personal attack on my husband, would I take it lying down? My hunch is I would not."

In other words, look for the family money to show up the next time an opponent questions Kerry's war record (which, by the way, could be any day now).
