Bogus Scandal

Via Andrew Sullivan, it looks like the John Kerry intern scandal is about as substance-free the Bush AWOL story. No big surprise.
Alexandra Polier, supposedly the intern Kerry had an affair with, denies she ever slept with him. That’s to be expected, and it doesn’t mean much of anything.
But she also says she never interned for Kerry, nor did she work for him in any other capacity. This sort of thing is so easily disproved if it isn’t true, and there’s no reason to deny working for him in any case. It’s an intern scandal without an intern.
