John Kerry’s Big Dig Road Kill

Part of the roof of the Big Dig, a huge tunnel in Boston, fell and crushed a woman in a car to death. The Big Dig is more like a black hole for money because millions of taxpayer dollars have been spent on this project. John Kerry was instrumental in securing money for the bloated project as well as protecting it.

  • This morning, the Associated Press is reporting that Kerry worked to protect a $150 million loophole for a major insurance company working on The Big Dig – a $15 billion dollar construction boondoggle in Boston – which has been rife with corruption and political scandal, coming in 500 percent over budget.

  • WASHINGTON — A Senate colleague was trying to close a loophole that allowed a major insurer to divert millions of federal dollars from the Big Dig. Senator John F. Kerry stepped in and blocked the legislation.

    Over the next two years, the insurer, American International Group, paid Kerry’s way on a trip to Vermont and donated at least $30,000 to a tax-exempt group Kerry used to set up his presidential campaign. Company executives donated $18,000 to his Senate and presidential campaigns. (insomnomaniac)

  • In 1987, teemed up with Teddy to get an override of presidential veto of Boston’s Big Dig Boondoggle — one of the most larded distributions of taxpayer largess in U.S. history. (Prosecute Kerry)
  • John Kerry said Thursday his intervention on a legislative matter that affected the nation’s most expensive highway project had nothing to do with an insurer who benefited from his action and later gave him tens of thousands of dollars in donations. (USA Today)

If it is fair to blame George Bush for the deaths of soldiers then it is surely fair to blame Kerry for the death of this woman who had just gotten married. John Kerry was involved in shady business with regard to this huge boondoggle that was rife with corruption and where there is corruption in construction there is shoddy work. Did that shoddy work lead to the crushing death of Milena Delvalle? Will the Drive By Media demand a complete investigation into this and John Kerry’s involvement? Did John Kerry sacrifice this woman’s (and everyone’s) safety for political gain?

Only time will tell if these questions will be appropriately answered but one thing is certain, a woman is dead and the Big Dig that John Kerry, and Ted Kennedy for that matter, supported is responsible for her death.

    Sure there are. Since this act by Kerry took place after the election, do you suppose there is another reason. Besides, Kerry’s involvement was with the insurance company in charge of the product and in getting money for an already inflated project.

    The corruption was rampant and John kerry was right in the middle of it. The fact that he did not like this guy had little to do with his involvement.
