One of our favorite congressmen, representative Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) seems to have a run of bad luck lately. First he’s hit in the mouth by a hammer with a possible vendetta, then his car tries to kill him as he’s pulling into a CVS parking lot (where a police officer’s pen then tried to finish off the job), now we learn that his doctor is to blame for mixing the toxic drug cocktail Ambien (a sleep aid) and Phenergan (an anti-nausea medication) which caused him to… and :
Earlier yesterday, Cannon said officers at the scene thought Kennedy was staggering and might have been intoxicated. They called for supervisors over the radio, and the supervisors drove Kennedy home, he said.
Cannon said officers were upset that supervisors prevented them from conducting a more thorough investigation, which might have included sobriety tests. “The officers just want to be able to do their jobs,” he said.
He said if officers had administered a breath test for alcohol, “that certainly would have showed he wasn’t on anything, wouldn’t it?”
Police sources said officers noticed Kennedy’s Mustang shortly before the crash because he nearly drove head-on into a Capitol Police car. The Mustang’s lights were off, the sources said. The officer turned his patrol car around to pursue Kennedy, whose car then crashed into the barrier, the sources said.
When police approached, the sources said, Kennedy got out of his car and said he was late for a vote. The House had not been in session for hours.
From getting hammered in the face to driving hammered into a wall (and the car tried to kill a cop too, just like in
Carrie Christine!), poor Kennedy may want to rethink his strategy of having “never worked a fucking day in [his] life.” Because eventually the tools will revolt against the tool who refuses to use them.
