Ted Gets Expelled from Harvard for Cheating


- Ted managed to graduate from prep school (Milton Academy) in 1950 with only a C average.
- Teddy was never a scholar, and his brother Jack once referred to him as "the gay illiterate".

- Despite his terrible grades, Teddy (like brother Robert) was admitted to Harvard as a "legacy", because his older brothers and father had graduated form there with such distinction.

- Yet even at Harvard, young Ted floundered.
- In his sophomore year he was expelled for cheating. He had been failing Spanish and feared it would keep him off the varsity football team.
- He paid a friend to take the exam for him.
- Ted's friend, however, was recognized when he turned in the exam book.

- Both lads were expelled, but were advised that they could apply for readmission in a year if they demonstrated responsible citizenship.
- It was a shame and disgrace, but the family would manage to keep it a secret until Teddy ran for the Senate.
- 2 -

- After his expulsion from Harvard, Teddy returned to Hyannis Port where he would sit brooding, sometimes for hours.
- Finally, he enlisted in the Army.
- Not surprisingly, he did not bother to read the enlistment papers and signed up for four years instead of two.
- Ted's father, the US Ambassador to England, was horrofied at the thought of his youngest son spending four years in the service, with a good chance of being sent into combat in Korea.
- "Don't you ever look at what you're signing?" he shouted.

- With one phone call Joe contacted a friend who managed to get hold of Teddy's enlistment papers.
- Ted's enlistment period was shortened to two years, a maneuver that was nearly impossible for the average enlistee.
- Furthermore, Ted would do his service in Europe, not Korea.

- Teddy never rose above the rank of private, and was discharged in 1952.
- He returned to Harvard in the fall of 1953, as did his test-taking friend, and they graduated together.
- 2 -

- Once back at Harvard, Teddy made the rugby team.
- During one match in 1954, Ted got into three fistfights with opposing players and was finally thrown out of the game. According to referee Frederick Costick, Teddy was the only player he had ever expelled from a game in thirty years of officiating.
- "Rugby is a character-building sport," Costick said. "Players learn how to conduct themselves on the field with the idea that they will learn how to conduct themselves in life. When a player loses control of himself three times in a single afternoon, to my mind, that is a sign that, in a crisis, the man is not capable of thinking clearly and acting rationally. Such a man will panic under pressure."

- Of course, years later, in the crisis at Chappaquiddick, Teddy would do exactly that.
- 3 -

- In 1957, Ted entered the University of Virginia Law School.
- The warning signs of trouble would continue.
- While in law school, Ted would earn the nickname "Cadillac Eddie". He was cited four times for reckless driving (three times in 1958 and once in 1959). These violations included running red lights and driving with his lights off at ninety miles per hour in a suburban area.
- Teddy was convicted of three violations and fined, but for some reason his driver's license was never revoked. [ for more details - click HERE ]

Did anyone happen to hear Steve Doucey on Fox & Friends this morning (about 8:30am). They were talking about the Alito Hearings and Kennedy. Doucey said something to the effect that unlike Alito, Kennedy will answer any question put to him, except questions dealing with 1969. (For those who don't know, 1969 was the year Kennedy killed Kopechne).

I will never understand why the WORST of the Kennedy clan has been the one to live the longest.
To say that this man is an abomination to humanity is going light on him. Hopefully he will eventually burn in the ninth level of Hell along with the Klintons.

Well gee.

If G.W.'s college life is cause for libbie criticism, and if Alito's college days are relevant to his selection for the Supreme Court to the point that a bunch of Senators want to examine everything about Alito's college record, why can't we do the same for ol' Teddy?

It's a good for the goose, good for the gander type thing.

Uncle Ted's past is why he could never be nominated for SCOTUS.
Gotta love the irony when he tries to drill these nominees.
Understand this folks, fat Ted is not the problem.
Blame the voters of the State of Taxacheusettes for re-electing this asshole.
At least the Kali Senators have a tiny bit of decency.

Perhaps they are bringing these issues up precisely because Ted Kennedy is an arrogant sack of shit who lectures everyone in his self rightous way as if he is some almighty bastion of ethics and achievement. He's a sneak, a cheat, a drunk, a killer, a liar and a scumbag.

You don't go up enough if you can't tell the difference between Kennedy's accent and a Bostonian accent. Pronunciation of some words may be the same, but the Kennedy's accent is unique, they have their own accent which is VERY different from everyone else in MA, or New England for that matter. 95thFoot is correct..no one else up here talks like a Kennedy.

True. The Kennedy's have a unique accent. It's actually kind of disturbing. How can a family develop their own accent? Spooky, I tell you.

I don't do drugs either, and I have missed about 6 classes in 5 years, all accidents. But as long as you study and get good grades, I don't give a crap if you spend your free time doing drugs.

You know... When somebody knows about something I did in my past that I'm ashamed of, I gernerally act very different around them then I would normally. I feel disgraced due to these things, when around them. It's a sign of remorse.

Ted doesn't seem to show any of it. Consequent-less lives typical yield such an individual. Honestly though, if I was him-- I would be ashamed to ever attack someone else's past.

The story I heard was worse. Almost right after Teddy was booted from school, his father called him up and told him that he was ALREADY in the Army. His father arranged for him to serve a draftee term as a member of a USA honor guard in SHAPE, stationed in Belgium, when almost every other draftee went right to Korea. I don't think Teddy ever saw any enlistment papers, much less signed them. Everything was "arranged" by Joe Kennedy.
