Re: Joe Guzzardi`s Column: Joe To Caroline: Stick To The Cocktail Circuit!
In her effort to get appointed to the U.S. Senate, Caroline Kennedy`s biggest enemy is time. Every week a new, unflattering revelation about her finances becomes public.
This week the New York Times reported that Kennedy got a free pass on financial disclosure requirements that even billionaire mayor Michael Bloomberg had to meet. As with everything else, Kennedy`s spokesmen refuse to explain. [Kennedy Was Spared Financial Disclosure As Top Aide at City Schools, by Alison Leigh Cowan, New York Times, January 3, 2009]
The problem is the system that allows Gov. David Paterson to make the Senate choice.
What credentials does he have?
Paterson is not New York`s elected governor. In fact, Paterson got his start in politics two decades ago through a Democratic Party nomination—not a general election—to fill a State Senate seat vacant because of Leon Bogues` death.
Don`t forget about Caroline`s cousin, Teddy`s son Patrick, an eight-term Rhode Island Congressman with a "F" immigration grade.
Carbine is an accountant.
