Kerry spokeswoman Kelley Benander , confirmed that aides to Kerry, who hired Clinton White House opposition researcher Mike Gehrke last spring, have begun scouring the public backgrounds of Democrats on the White House campaign trail as well as President Bush. ‘We are certainly getting up to speed on the public records of all the candidates in the race, including our own,’ she said. ‘We also thoroughly scrub John Kerry's background to prepare him from attacks from George W. Bush and his right-wing allies.’
