John Kerry said today that he has personally accepted Texas Oilman, T. Boone Pickens’ offer to pay $1 million to anyone who can disprove a single charge of the Swift Boat Veteran’s For Truth.
In a letter to, the Massachusetts Democrat wrote: “While I am prepared to show they lied on allegation after allegation, you have generously offered to pay one million dollars for just one thing that can be proven false. I am prepared to prove the lie beyond any reasonable doubt.”
Kerry, a Navy veteran and former prosecutor, said he was willing to present his case directly to Pickens, who provided $3 million to bankroll the group during Kerry’s race against.
Kerry said he would donate any proceeds to the Paralyzed Veterans of America.
The senator said Pickens issued the challenge Nov. 6 in Washington, while serving as chairman of a 40th anniversary gala for American Spectator magazine.
Pickens spokesman Jay Rosser asked to review the letter before commenting.
What about that Standard Form-180 that Kerry promised to supply back in May of 2004?
Well, it took him awhile, but finally in May of ’05, Kerry did sign a form of the SF-180 that released a limited selection of his military records.
Kerry only agreed to sign off on the SF-180. He didn’t agree to release every document that results from that request. The SF-180 will only release the information to Kerry, who can then cull the material for anything embarrassing before making it public.
It’s been 3 1/2 years since the Swift Boat Veterans For Truth made their allegations.
I wonder what sort of weaselly maneuvers he has in store for us, now.
