On July 18, 1969, a drunk Ted Kennedy drove off the Chappaquiddick bridge leaving Mary Jo Kopechne in the car to drown. He was able to escape and waited ten hours to report the incident , leaving Mary Jo trapped in the car.
Ted Kennedy pleaded guilty to a charge of leaving the scene of an accident causing personal injury and later received a two-month suspended jail sentence.
At the time, the media worked hard to protect Ted Kennedy. They are still at it today. Witness some of the recent headlines:
