John Kerry girl tells all
Posted by McQ

I'll let you judge the validity of this but it even gives us a name and a picture.

UPDATE: (JON) She's issued a denial....

Breaking her silence four days after the allegations surfaced on the Internet, Alexandra Polier issued a statement to The Associated Press, saying, "I have never had a relationship with Senator Kerry, and the rumors in the press are completely false."
...
In a separate statement, Polier's parents, Terry and Donna Polier of Malvern, Pa., dismissed the "completely false and unsubstantiated" allegations about their daughter.

"We love and support her 100 percent and these unfounded rumors are hurtful to our entire family," the statement said. "We appreciate the way Senator Kerry has handled the situation, and intend on voting for him for president of the United States."
...
Regarding her silence until now, Polier said, "Because these stories were false, I assumed the media would ignore them. It seems that efforts to peddle these lies continue, so I feel compelled to address them."

Absent any compelling reason to believe otherwise, that's good enough for me.

UPDATE II: (McQ) Drudge provides and interesting retrospective of the press's reaction to the rumor of infidelity when Bush 41 was the target.

That's not good enough. Kerry has to show PROOF of this. How do we know there isn't hush money being paid?

Lets hold Kerry to the same standard of proof GWB is being held for his national guard service.

Why is what's good for one not good for the other?

How come the parents were calling Kerry a "sleazeball" yesterday, but today plan on voting for him for President?

WHY IS OUR PRESS NOT DIGGING INTO THIS INCONSISTANCY THE WAY THEY DIG INTO ANY LITTLE QUESTIONABLE ITEM REGARDING THE BUSH NATIONAL GUARD RECORDS?

Because one is a Republican, and the other is a Democrat.

I agree with Shark: until Kerry issues unassailable, iron-clad proof, in triplicate, with numerous impeccable eye-witnesses agreeing back him, I'll just assume it's true. After all, that's what the press and the Democrats are doing to Bush...

I have no additional information on this other than what I read online.

However, it does make me curious why Clark said there was going to be an intern issue while Alex Polier said that she never was an intern.

Could the press have been hounding the wrong woman and the intern is yet to be found?

Or the whole thing is crap. Either way makes sense to me.
