One of my favorite bumper stickers:
And here's Ted leaving Mary Jo's funeral. Wifey doesn't look too happy.

The whole story (and this is from memory, so I apologize for any errors): Ted and Mary Jo were both attending a party on the island. Ted was leaving, and Mary Jo asked for a ride to the ferry. At some point, Ted drove off a bridge which was nowhere near the ferry, nor on the way: it was in fact in the opposite direction from the ferry. The car submerged and inverted. Kennedy was able to escape. Mary Jo wasn't. Kennedy didn't bother to tell anybody about the accident for, I believe, 10 hours.
When they dragged the car out of the water, Mary Jo was found with her face pressed to the floor of the car (which would've been above her) as though she'd been breathing from a trapped air bubble waiting for a rescue which never came until she suffocated. Kennedy pleaded guilty to "leaving the scene of an accident." Later, a coroner's inquest ruled Mary Jo's death a homicide. Kennedy was never charged.
I think that's about it.
A very drunk girl got in a car with a very drunk famous politician and they had an accident. He was too f'd up to handle it and ran off. She drowned. He got off too lightly, probably because that's just how our "justice" system works. The right has tried to demonize everything 'left' by whispering or squealing 'Chappaquiddick!' every chance they got. The left has tried to demonize the 'right' by whispering or squealing 'they're bringing up Chappaquiddick!' every chance they got.
Good thing that girl died, or what would we have to use against each other regarding Ted Kennedy, eh?

They really did.
Thanks for finding that LibraryLady. I'm amazed at the group think and stupidity over there.
Every time you think you have seen something that trumps all other stupidity - one 'alpha stupid'
will outperform the stupidity of those that came before them.
It is unbelievable.
Just think: Some of these people are on the streets driving cars.
