The fact that the Heinz trust has moved its ownership offshore is potentially a bigger liability to Kerry than this possible affair. It’s hard to run as the All-American champion of the little guy when your wife is avoiding corporate income taxes.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for Heinz and everyone else doing exactly the same thing. I just think it is a very weak spot considering Kerry’s ideology. “We must raise your taxes so that my rich wife can pay less!” Then again, cognitive dissonance is practically a requirement for membership in the Left these days.
