Kerry’s campaign was attempting last week to respond to charges that Kerry, while serving on the Senate Intelligence Committee during the 1990s, missed three-fourths of that committee’s public hearings. The campaign claimed on its website August 16: “John Kerry served on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence for 8 years and is the former vice chairman of the committee.” Actually, it was Sen. Bob Kerrey (D.-Neb.), not John Kerry (D.-Mass.), who served as vice chairman of the committee. Kerry (without the “e”) still has not answered calls to release his attendance record for the classified, closed-door committee hearings.
