Ted K. to quit club that bans women

by Mark5019 / January 17, 2006 3:49 AM PST

U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy ? who ripped Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito for ties to a group that discriminates against women ? says he?s going to quit a club notorious for discriminating against women ?as fast as I can.?

Kennedy was outed by conservatives late last week as a current member of The Owl Club, a social club for Harvard alumni that bans women from membership.

In an interview with WHDH Channel 7?s Andy Hiller that aired last night, Kennedy said, ?I joined when I . . . 52 years ago, I was a member of the Owl Club, which was basically a fraternal organization.?

Asked by Hiller whether he is still a member, Kennedy said, ?I?m not a member; I continue to pay about $100.?


if he pays 100 hes still a member:(hes so friggan 2 faced

Maybe he should quit...

While he's in this self-contemplative confessional mode, maybe he should quit the Senate too. That's the other exclusionary "do as I say, not as I do" club he's been a member of for decades now.
