Richest Senator John Kerry wants donations for election 4 years away

A report in the Boston Herald is aptly titled John Kerry: Deck my halls.

John Kerry (pictured), the richest man in the Senate, wants cash-strapped party donors in Massachusetts to fill his campaign war chest — even though he’s not up for re-election for another four years!

Not only that, Mr. Kerry put up $85,000 to rent the 2,000-seat Boston Symphony where Boston Pops maestro Keith Lockhart, singer James Taylor and actor-director Ben Affleck are expected to appear.

John Kerry's gala at the Boston Symphony is to celebrate himself.

That's right, the event is meant to celebrate Kerry’s 25 years in the Senate and 45 years of public service.

By the way, the $85,000 to rent the 2,000-seat Boston Symphony came out of Kerry's campaign funds.

How much of the contributions Kerry is soliciting will be used to pay the taxes on the yacht he has docked in Rhode Island (to avoid Massachusetts taxes)?
