A Tribute to Senator Edward Kennedy

In Memory of Mary Jo Kopechne

Remember the Chappaquiddick incident? Six older married men party with six young single women known as the "Boiler Room Girls," all of whom had worked in the Bobby Kennedy Presidential campaign. Ted Kennedy leaves the party a little after 11 PM with Mary Jo Kopechne. The car runs off of a bridge and ends upside down in the water. Kennedy allegedly swims to safety and Mary Jo drowns. Kennedy does not report the accident until the next day. A thorough investigation is never conducted. Kennedy was found guilty of leaving the scene of an accident and had his drivers licence suspended for a year. Thirty-five years later there are still a lot of unanswered questions. If this had happened to anyone but a Kennedy in Massachusetts more questions would have been asked. Did Ted Kennedy got away with murder?
