"It was nine hours before he reported the accident. In the meantime, he walked back to his motel, complained to the manager about a noisy party, took a shower, went to sleep, ordered newspapers when he woke up and spoke to a friend and two lawyers before finally calling the police."

Margaret Trudeau wrote in her memoir that she had a romance with Senator Ted Kennedy. Margaret said she became infatuated with Kennedy after meeting him a few years earlier. She told Kennedy that he "had not destroyed my marriage but that I had used him to help me destroy a marriage that was already over."

Didn't old Ted try to swing some treasonous deal with the Soviets to take out Reagan as well? I see he suffered the same fate as Hanoi McCain. Interesting how the media always gets the real traitors and perverts mixed up in party status

She feels used in the Liberals' victorious election campaign in 1974.
Her home becomes "a jail." She has an affair with Ted Kennedy, then
drummer Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones, and others. The girl
got around.
