Now who's the lesser of two evils, the next would-be president, or his WIFE!
Quoted from this link:
Married Senator John Kerry in 1995. She only took his name eighteen months ago and she is an "interesting" paradox of conflicts. If you thought John
Kerry was scary, he doesn't hold a candle to his wife!
Maria Teresa Thiersten Simoes-Ferreira Heinz Kerry was born in Mozambique, the daughter of a Portuguese physician, was educated in Switzerland and
South Africa. Fluent in five languages, she was working as a United Nations interpreter in Geneva in the mid-60s when she met a "handsome" young
American, H. John Heinz, III, who worked at a bank in Geneva. He told her his family was "in the food business."
They were married in 1966 and returned to Pittsburgh where his family ran the giant H.J. Heinz food company. He was elected to the US House of
Representatives in 1971, and in 1976 he was elected to the first of three terms in the United States Senate. A Republican, he wrote a burning diatribe
against some of the causes backed by young House member (John Kerry).
Several years later, in 1991, he was killed when his plane collided with a Sun Oil Company helicopter over a Philadelphia suburb. The senator, his
pilot and copilot, and both of Sun's helicopter pilots were killed. He was survived by his wife, Teresa, and their three young sons.
Four years later, having inherited Heinz's $500 million fortune, she married Senator John Forbes Kerry, the liberal junior senator from
Massachusetts. She became a registered Democrat and the process of her radicalization was set in motion. Heinz Kerry is not shy about telling people
that she required Kerry to sign a prenuptial agreement before they were married. John Kerry may not have check writing privileges on the Heinz catsup
and pickle fortune, but he is certainly a willing and uncomplaining beneficiary of it. A lot of hard-earned money, made through many years of hawking
catsup, mustard, and pickles has fallen into the hands of two people who despise successful entrepreneurship and who believe in the confiscatory
redistribution of wealth.
