More Mayo, Please
U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy said this afternoon that he will return to the Mayo Clinic to get help for his addiction to painkillers according to FNC. He stated that he didn't recall any part of the accident and added, "I know I need help." In response to a reporter's question whether he would resign, he shook his head no and added that he needed to stay in the fight. Kennedy has struggled with alcohol and drug problems in the past: over the latest Christmas holidays he checked himself into the Rochester, Minn. clinic for help. Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) cancelled two public appearances and released a statement saying, "I love Patrick very much and am very proud of him. All of us in the family admire his courage in speaking publicly about very personal issues and fully support his decision to seek treatment."
