Disclosure’s for peasants!

posted at 10:14 am on December 23, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

Caroline Kennedy really wants to replace Hillary Clinton in the US Senate, but ambition has its limits.  While JFK’s daughter tries to make the case that she can campaign for the seat in two successive elections in 2010 and 2012, she’s already refusing the normal disclosure rules candidates would follow.  Kennedy won’t reveal her investments or even her criminal record, the New York Times reports:

If she were applying to be, say, an undersecretary of education in Barack Obama’s new administration, Caroline Kennedy would have to fill out a 63-item confidential questionnaire disclosing potentially embarrassing text messages and diary entries, the immigration status of her household staff, even copies of every résumé she used in the last 10 years.

If she were running for election to the Senate, Ms. Kennedy would have to file a 10-part, publicly available report disclosing her financial assets, credit card debts, mortgages, book deals and the sources of any payments greater than $5,000 in the last three years.

But Ms. Kennedy, who has asked Gov. David A. Paterson to appoint her to succeed Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton — and who helped oversee the vetting process for Mr. Obama’s possible running mates — is declining to provide a variety of basic data, including companies she has a stake in and whether she has ever been charged with a crime.

Ms. Kennedy declined on Monday to reply to those and other questions posed by The New York Times about any potential ethical, legal and financial entanglements. Through a spokesman, she said she would not disclose that kind of information unless and until she becomes a senator.

Paterson says he will require any potential appointee to submit that information prior to selection.  Paterson just got bit by the disclosure bug himself when his closest aide’s failure to pay income taxes for five years surfaced a few months ago.  It seems unlikely that he’ll rely on Caroline’s assurances of propriety before sending her to Washington.

Besides, what would Caroline need to hide?  She may claim that she wants to remain private in her affairs, but all that goes out the window when pursuing political office, perhaps especially when seeking an appointment.  I doubt that she has an arrest record — any arrest of Caroline Kennedy would have been blasted in headlines around the world — but her financial dealings could show potential conflicts of interest.  The constituents she would represent at least have a legitimate expectation to have access to that information before she gets granted a Senate sinecure.

New Yorkers have to wonder what Kennedy will do for them, because so far, this pursuit has been all about Caroline.  She won’t answer questions from the press and she won’t offer the normal disclosures unless and until she gets appointed.  We joke about American royalty, but in this case, Caroline seems to really believe in the royal prerogative for herself.  I wonder if she uses the royal We when referring to herself as well.

SWLiP on December 23, 2008 at 10:25 AM

I think (hope?) this is not going to happen. There are too many ambitious politicians who were asked to step aside for Hillary. They will not do so again for Caroline.

These knocks (no questions, no voting, no disclosure) are beginning to take their toll. This will not be a big feather in the cap for Governor Paterson if he selects her. Absent that, what is the reason for doing so?

gridlock2 on December 23, 2008 at 10:27 AM

I saw this liberal mouthpiece on tv explaining to us plain folks the reason Princess is more qualified than Palin politically is because Princess went to like Harvard and Columbia, and she wrote a book or something. I was thinking stupid me, I turned down scholarships from both of these Ivy league schools 25 yrs ago. What does that make me??? Instant presidential candidate?? :)

What right do those New York peasants (or anyone else for that matter) have to question or delay the princess . . . just give her the senate seat like good little subjects and shut up.

Come on upstate New York! We’re counting on you to deny this little princess her “due”! Little Caroline needs to spend her time wasting HER money, not ours!

Poor little Caroline…. She has it so tough! She sure does look old. She isn’t qualified for the Senate.

sheebe on December 23, 2008 at 10:39 AM

Between this and the faux e-mail missive from the Mayor of Paris that they were forced to retract, the Times over the past couple of days has been a lot tougher on Caroline than they have on, say, the president-elect over the past 15 months.

They’re not quite to the level of treating her like a Republican, but there’s definitely not the fawning reaction some of the other pundits and the New York liberal community in general have shown toward her candidacy. The only question is which other faction of the state’s Democratic hierarchy is goading the Times on to actually do their job (Clintons? Cuomos? Schumer? Patterson? Whomever it is, the Kennedy camp can’t be very amused)

jon1979 on December 23, 2008 at 10:40 AM

Can someone explain why the NYT is against Caroline? Are they Cuomo supporters? Not sure what offending the Kennedy Klan does for the Times, but it is fun to watch.

Or is all of this a distraction from Badd Asss Patterson’s tax grab?

I do enjoy the Lib infighting.

GarandFan on December 23, 2008 at 10:47 AM

Isn’t that what government is becoming – the elite? Why should we expect anything less? America’s obsession with Princess Diana, sports players, the “rich and famous” and Hollywood has allowed these people to believe they are above us.

Caroline will need to check with Pelosi for a good face lift surgeon, but other than that she’s just as “qualified” as the likes of Peolsi, Clinton, Dodd, etc.

Uncle Ted has to find all of the account numbers for the family trusts off shore and bring some of the cash back to the states before she discloses anything. Otherwise everyone will see that the Kennedys pay less than 15% tax on about 400 million. Very patriotic of them.

Could be. But his son, the former head of Fannie Mae, Daniel Mudd, is now famous as the man who gave an obsequious and fawning speech to the Congressional Black Caucus on how they, and Fannie, were “partners” in bringing affordable housing to all.

(All those who don’t have the slightest ability to afford it, or intention of paying it back, that is.)

Pure, unadulterated, poisonous, liberalism. And who gives a f**k whether it’s Caroling K or Special K. It’s a lib seat, like Bambi’s is a black seat.

Since when are Dems held accountable for their actions?

The royal Camelot family especially, gets a free pass at all times. These are the beautiful people, they are stinking rich just like you and me. They are above the law, everything they do is for the children, the elderly and the helpless (sans infants).

They may get and promote abortions and even heaven forgives them since they are on this earth just to make it a better place.

I am sickened by this cheap tactic to disclose any information on a liberal individual, who will be involved with running this nation and keeping it secure based on their judgment and character.

This is bigotry against the rich, the beautiful, and not really White since they are liberal.

Snowed In on December 23, 2008 at 11:24 AM

We know how this ends. Patterson will allow her to submit the information directly to him and only he and his advisors will review it to make sure everything is OK.

You would think that he would know better but Patterson can only see money at the end of the Kennedy rainbow.

dhunter on December 23, 2008 at 11:30 AM

Let’s see–her Uncle Ted drowned his mistress while driving drunk.

Her cousin Pat crashed the gate while driving drunk to a 3 AM vote (?) in the House.

Her brother John crashed his plane on a warm summer evening off Martha’s Vinyard, taking his wife and sister-in-law down with him.

With a family like that, Princess Caroline needs a breathalyzer test before she can be a Senator. But her Grandpa Joe made his millions selling rum!

christene on December 23, 2008 at 11:34 AM

I grew up in Kennedyland, and Caroline was always regarded as a princess. People literally worshiped her. She could have run for any office and won by a huge margin. But she chose to continue to remain relatively secluded, the way Jackie wanted for her and her brother as they grew up.
I think that her time for public service in the Kennedy tradition has passed, but if she really wants to get involved in politics, then running for office is the way, not seeking appointment from the governor.

n0doz on December 23, 2008 at 11:35 AM

The more committed Caroline becomes to accepting the seat the more references to Diamond’s hit song will appear in the mainstream media. We’ll know she is pulling out all of the stops if we start seeing Neil Diamond doing interviews and lip synching on Good Morning America.

moxie_neanderthal on December 23, 2008 at 12:52 PM

Remind me to e-mail you later. Caroline has (or had) a bust on her record in Manhattan from the early 90’s, but damned if I can dig it up just now. I’m not entirely sure, but they may have gotten it expunged from her record. It was quite the little scandal in town at the time, though. The press, of course, paid it almost no mind at all.

Caroline seems to really believe in the royal prerogative for herself

We should just find out if she can feel a pea under 40 mattresses and settle this matter once and for all.

Cheshire Cat on December 23, 2008 at 1:01 PM

The main problem I have with all of this is that she will be appointed by a governor that wasn’t even voted into the office by the citizens. It’s like a double whammy!

And this point can’t be overlooked, if she’s appointed, she will NEVER run against any credible DEMOCRAT ever! Let’s see her run for Senate in 2010 when they will be lining up for the empty seat. Put Cuomo in there and then have her run. Once she’s in, no credible Dem will “go against The Royal Family”

Butters on December 23, 2008 at 1:04 PM

Yeah, but how does Caroline look in a photoshopped bikini holding a rifle? Now THAT’s the true test of worthiness.

44Magnum on December 23, 2008 at 1:07 PM

The constituents she would represent at least have a legitimate expectation to have access to that information before she gets granted a Senate sinecure.

I really think she doesn’t believe that she would be representing anyone other than the elite of the Dem party were she to become Senator.

I hope Paterson sticks to his guns on this one.

CAROLINE KENNEDY DENIES PROBE REPORT
Caroline Kennedy has denied reports that she might have entered the hotel room of cousin David Kennedy shortly before two employees found him dead of a drug overdose. The 26-year-old daughter of President John F. Kennedy prepared a statement late Tuesday after documents made public last week revealed that she and another woman were seen at the Brazilian Court Hotel about 90 minutes before David Kennedy’s body was discovered.

‘The rubber schwan is mine’…said her daddy on a Wayne and Schuster(?) comedy LP that was done around his ascent. I was shell-shocked in first grade over his assassination, but I didn’t like the looks of him when i was a kid…I still don’t.

JFK became President and soon the Kennedy-Khrushchev Exchanges began. Next the invasion of the Bay of Pigs.

George W. Bush became President and Saddam-Bush exchanges began. Next we (along the with world) invaded Iraq.

JFK cut taxes.
GWB cut taxes.

JFK was assassinated. OK, I feel bad a POTUS was killed but what else did the man accomplish? He wasn’t exactly known for the Husband of the Year, he was a ho.

So, because Mrs. Schlossberg’s daddy was killed, that qualifies her? I don’t get it.

Ah the privilege of Camelot!

And now for a “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” moment quoting Dennis the Peasant;

“Listen, strange women lying in ponds, distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives itself from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. Well you can’t expect to wield supreme executive power, just cause some watery tart threw a sword at you. Why if I went around saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they’d put me away!” “…Help, Help, I’m being repressed.”

For all you naysayers out there, Princess Caroline is qualified to be a Senator (or a Representative) today. Isn’t the current holder of the Office of President-Elect a former junior Senator from Illinois (who has yet to serve one term, much less time than that when you consider actually being, you know, a senator). With the likes of Pesolsi, Reid, et.al., Princess Caroline is most assuredly qualified for the job.

Besides, if the country’s going to have to go through hell before we come to our senses, I say let’s get on with it then. Put this Aristocrat (D) into the Senate. Us peons deserve it.

And the Dems thought Palin was unqualified… does this make them hypocrites? Short answer, yes.
