Bitter notes that in 1993 John Kerry gave a grand total of $135 to charity, but leaves out this important detail:
In 1993, for instance, living on a senator's salary of about $100,000, he managed to give a total of $135 to charity.You can argue about whether or how much a public figure should give to charity, but my take is this: John Kerry doesn’t believe in religion. No man – even if he doesn’t physically attend services – would give such a pittance to his church. Oh, I’m sure Kerry writes some big checks to the Catholic Church now, but “Character is doing what's right when nobody's looking.”
Yet that same year, he was somehow able to scrape together $8,600 for a brand-new, imported Italian motorcycle, a Ducati Paso 907 IE.
