    New Hampsire Union Leader ^ | August 22, 2004 | Bernadette Malone:
    WHEN NEWS broke in the New Hampshire Sunday News that John Kerry made up the story of Mary Ann Knowles having to work through her chemotherapy for fear of losing her health insurance, deja vu bells went off. Knowles, the New Hampshire resident and campaign volunteer he cited in his Democratic National Convention acceptance speech and used as justification for his health care plan, didn’t work through chemo because of an insurance problem. She kept working because her salary would have been reduced if she had gone on disability — a weighty prospect, to be sure. But, her husband told...

    SEN. JOHN Kerry visits Derry today to talk about health care. While on the subject, maybe he can explain why he is lying about a New Hampshire woman’s insurance status. Repeatedly throughout his campaign, Kerry has held up Hudson resident Mary Ann Knowles as an example of President Bush’s failure to ensure adequate health care for all Americans (as if a President can do such a thing). Here is what he said during his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention last month: “What does it mean when Mary Ann Knowles, a woman with breast cancer I met in New...

    HUDSON, N.H. -- A key detail in a story told by Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry is being questioned. The Massachusetts senator has repeatedly talked about a New Hampshire woman who was undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. Kerry says she continued working out of fear of losing her health insurance, because her husband was unemployed.In television ads, e-mails and speeches, Kerry has used the plight of Mary Ann and John Knowles to criticize the Bush administration's health care policies. But the Knowles' own account differs in one key detail. John Knowles told the New Hampshire Sunday News that Mary Ann...

    NEXT TIME John Kerry accuses President Bush of misleading the American people, remember Mary Ann Knowles. Knowles is the Hudson woman whose battle with breast cancer Kerry has turned into a campaign anecdote. Here is what Kerry said about Knowles during his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention on July 29: “What does it mean when Mary Ann Knowles, a woman with breast cancer I met in New Hampshire, had to keep working day after day right through her chemotherapy, no matter how sick she felt, because she was terrified of losing her family’s health insurance? America can do...
