50 years ago today, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy left a party on Chappaquiddick Island near Martha's Vineyard with Mary Jo Kopechne, 28; some time later, Kennedy's car went off a bridge into the water. Kennedy was able to escape, but Kopechne drowned. pic.twitter.com/X7jCFJcyJw

Gotta love how the AP does their best to whitewash and even rewrite history for certain people.
If only Ted Kennedy’s stinkin’ car had behaved itself that night …
Kennedy was able to escape, but Kopechne was not.
