The New York Way
So when an unqualified heiress wants to be anointed US Senator, this is what stands in her way:
This decade, other than a $1,000 donation to City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, the Camelot heiress has not financially supported any Democrat seeking city or state office in New York, records reveal.
Some say Kennedy, who is worth at least $100 million, missed an opportunity to curry favor among Democratic pols to establish herself as a serious political player as she lobbies Gov. Paterson for Hillary Clinton's Senate seat.
I guess you've got to be a little more friendly with the cash if you want to play in New York.
