Sen. Teddy Kennedy (D.-Mass.) had a hard time remembering what happened at Chappaquiddick following Mary Jo Kopechne’s death. Yet he had no problem badgering Samuel Alito about articles — with which he had no connection — from an obscure magazine that was published decades ago.
Kennedy read quotes from Prospect magazine, the publication of Concerned Alumni of Princeton, and then he proceeded to ask Alito if he had ever read them. He repeated this for several minutes before Alito appeared to grow tired of the tactic and flatly said he had no recollection of any of it.
You might be wondering, What does Samuel Alito have to do with any of this? Nothing.
But that hasn’t stopped Kennedy and other Democrats from reciting, over and over again, the charges related to Concerned Alumni of Princeton.
