John Kerry tied to controversial Bain Capital investment: http://t.co/X5jO8xxE— Washington Post (@washingtonpost) March 17, 2012
From Washington Post:
Romney, it turns out, isn’t the only prominent American politician connected with that controversial investment: Former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, who now chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, reported more money than Romney invested in the same fund on his most recent Senate disclosure form.
The funds, Kerry staffers say, were actually invested by his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, widow of former Pennsylvania Sen. John Heinz III, sole heir to the Heinz ketchup and food fortune.
“This isn’t Senator Kerry’s investment,” said Kerry spokeswoman Jodi Seth. “He is not and never has been a beneficiary of his wife’s trusts, which were established before they knew each other, and are controlled by independent trustees.”
