The other day I suggested that Democrats might next accuse embattled UN Ambassador nominee John Bolton of kicking puppies. A reader, Tom, pointed me to a 2002 article on Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) -- and what he used to do to kittens.
Seems Sen Frist, while a young medical student, would lie to animal shelters about his plans for kittens he was adopting. Rather than giving them a good home, he would give them a good dissectin'.
PETA's on the case -- too late to help the kitties who took their permanent catnaps back in the 70s.
Sen Frist admitted to the cat con in a book he wrote back in 1989. He now calls the idea of lying to get the cats "heinous and dishonest." But apparently it wasn't illegal.
At least he's willing to talk about it. I'd hate to think the cat's got his tongue. (UPI)
