Kerry Fires Back at Mary Cheney’s Slur
Posted on May 10, 2006
After the vice president’s daughter called him a “son of a bitch” for mentioning her sexuality during a 2004 debate, John Kerry retorts that Mary Cheney “flacked for the most anti-gay administration in history.”
The Raw Story:
In response to an article Wednesday in which Vice President Dick Cheney’s lesbian daughter is quoted as calling Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) a “son of a bitch” for mentioning her sexuality in the presidential debates, Kerry’s office fired off this retort to RAW STORY.
Kerry spokesman David Wade said Mary Cheney had “flacked for the most anti-gay administration in history.”
?Seems like a suspicious lecture from a political operative who flacked for the most anti-gay administration in history and allowed Karl Rove to divide America for political gain,” Wade said. “She?d be more credible if she pushed dad?s administration to support hate crimes legislation and equal rights for gay Americans.?
