It's too late now for any Lehane puke politics to have much of an effect on Tuesday's voting. My guess is that Clark has, with good reason, written off NH to focus more on other states, and Lehane is thus holding back in case he needs to drop this bomb later on.
Under Edgar Sr., Seagram expanded overseas and extended itself into real estate and oil.
So, if Shapiro was correct on Fox today, there is STILL a bomb to drop.
Hon, you are misunderstanding what I am saying. Although this article is not the result of Chris Lehane's opposition research, many of the scandals that drop in the last few days of various primary campaigns will be. Just because it appears in a paper doesn't mean that the story didn't come from an opponent of Kerry's. Opposition research is very often leaked to a friendly media outlet. That is how it becomes a story, rather than a charge by the opposing candidate.
And excuse me,Hon, but I spend quite a bit of time researching things myself. This is a good story and I am glad it was posted.
Well this story did appear in the Boston Globe
To win the primary, the newcomer overcame the election eve arrest of his brother, Cameron, and campaign field director Thomas J. Vallely, both then 22, in the basement of a Lowell building that housed the headquarters of Kerry and another Democratic contender, state Representative Anthony R. DiFruscia of Lawrence. It was almost 2 a.m. - 30 hours before the polls opened - when the two were arrested on charges of breaking and entering with intent to commit larceny.
That day's Sun blared a memorable, double-deck headline: "Kerry brother arrested in Lowell `Watergate."' DiFruscia, getting some extra ink in the campaign's waning hours, had drawn the parallel to the break-in at Democratic headquarters in Washington three months earlier.
But records obtained by The Globe show a lot went undisclosed about the complex scheme, which he entered six weeks before he became a candidate for US Senate in January 1984, and, by Kerry's account, broke off before May 31, 1984, the date he chose for filing a report on his personal finances to the Senate
