Specter and Kennedy on Kennedy’s CAP Ploy


Specter: Matter struck me as unmeritorious when I learned of it. Kennedy never mentioned it to me. David Kirkpatrick of NY Times told my staffer that he went through all the records. Staffer called Rusher over lunch hour. Rusher happy to make records available, so we’ll get them. Puzzled at Kennedy raising the issue in this manner.

Kennedy: I thought that access would be routine. (Oh, yeah, access to private-party records is always routine.)
