Driving with an expired license is a crime in most states especially where a death has occured.The Massachusetts Registrar of motor Vehicles personally typed one in his office and hand delivered it to Kennedy thus aiding and abetting a felon !
The first year they put him in the mail room opening and reading any letters to Kennedy that were from the 'little people'. He describes some of the mail as death threats and was instructed to forward those to a special bag they sent to the FBI .They would receive packages with dead rats and other little stinkey bodies that Kennedys 'fans' would send him .
The second year he was better known to the staff so they used him as a gopher and one night he had to drive Kennedy to National Airport at the last minute.
Kennedy was always late for the suttle to Boston and the kid was instructed to drive through red lights and over sidewalks to make the flight.The DC cops knew Kennedys car and never stopped it.
The following year he became Kennedys Jack of all trades and driver.He describes in the book Kennedys drinking and meetings where he was to make sure Joan Kennedy never left her bedroom while Kennedy entertained political critters at the house.She was at that time far gone into alcholism and drank at all hours and was a constand source of embarrasment to the family when they had guests .
The kid describes a party with a private dancer amoung a number of Kennedys political DC hacks and
where they were all over the dancer when they were all drunk, Kennedy and the dancer 'got it on' in the next room while his wife was right next door.When the kid published the book Kennedys agents threatened legal action and even tried to buy the kid off.

Plot Summary of The Senator: My Ten Years With Ted Kennedy
" In the 1970s, an idealistic Georgetown student named Richard Burke went to work for his political hero, Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts. Richard Burke shared Senator Kennedy's dream of a better America, but together the two men would have a falling out, a young man led into the fast lane by a hero who was crumbling before his very eyes. Richard Burke came to know Ted Kennedy better than anyone outside the Kennedy clan itself. He was a witness to all of the private excess which the media could only guess at.
Ted Kennedy is a complicated, and often contradictory man. A family man who saw his son through the ordeal of cancer, and then snorted cocaine with his three kids, at least according to Richard Burke. Also, Ted Kennedy's numerous affairs supposedly include the seduction of a 17-year-old intern.
Ted Kennedy was also one of the most respected members of congress, but he used his Washington office as a drop-off for his personal drug supply. Richard Burke saw it all, he was a willing participant in Ted Kennedy's adventures, he openly admits his own participation. Burke loved life in fast lane, the women, the drugs, and the special privileges, but he managed to escape before burning out completely."

NY Times refered to Burke as a "top aide to Mr. Kennedy." It's been several years since I read the book, and I remember that he had managerial responsibilities. I'll pull it off of the shelf tonight and confirm his title.
So, ĎThe Olí Grey Ladyí isnít worth a damn as a source the other 364 days a year, but when this story runs itís gold? Interesting.
If the author were to testify face to face with you and show pictures of Kennedy in action even then you would call them forgerys !A liberal to the bitter end of the rope !
