ANOTHER Kerry Lie! (I lost count a long time ago)

From the Rev. Donald Sensing:

Remember poor Mary Ann Knowles? She was the woman about whom John Kerry said,

What does it mean when Mary Ann Knowles, a woman with breast cancer I met in New Hampshire, had to keep working day after day right through her chemotherapy, no matter how sick she felt, because she was terrified of losing her family's health insurance.

Problem is,

Mary Ann Knowles did not have to work through her chemotherapy for fear of losing her health insurance. Employed by Elderhostel, the Boston-based non-profit travel organization for people 55 and older, Mary Ann had 26 weeks of paid disability at her disposal. More was available for a long-term illness. She did not have to work through her chemotherapy. She chose to.

Knowles would have lost some income had she taken the disability leave, said her husband, who is unemployed. But she would not have lost her health insurance, as Kerry has repeatedly misstated.

OK, so I have an axe to grind. I've hated John Kerry since his Vietnam Veterans Against The War days. That doesn't change the fact that he's still just as dishonest now as he was then. He's still lying today about his time in Vietnam (Cambodia? Yeah, right.) and about so many other things he can't keep his stories straight any more. As Mark Twain said, "The advantage of telling the truth is that you don't have to remember what you said." I guess Kerry never got around to reading Twain. Let's give this man an Oval Office.
