Patrick Kennedy to Plead Guilty


More bad news for Democrats:

Rep. Patrick Kennedy has reached a deal with prosecutors to plead guilty to a charge of driving under the influence of perscription drugs in connection for his middle-of-the-night car crash last month near the U.S. Capitol.

Two additional charges of reckless driving and failure to exhibit a driving permit will be dismissed under the plea agreement reached with prosecutors.

"As congressman Kennedy has said all along, he will take full responsibility for his actions and that is what he is doing today, "Kennedy's cheif of staff, Sean Richardson, said Tuesday.

I commend Kennedy for doing the right thing. He went to rehab and now pleads guilty, good for him, bad for Democrats.

I wish him well.
