Chappaquiddick Society

On February 18, 1998 the New York Post reported the introduction of 'Monica Lewinsky Presidential Kneepads' by the Chappaquiddick Society.  Here is the story as reported by Columnist Neal Travis.

Knee-d a laugh?
     YOU don't hear much about the Chappaquiddick Society, but its iconoclastic members - including President James Ridgway de Szigethy and everyone's favorite Queen Quentin Crisp - have started beating the drum for its annual 'Profile in Cowardice' award.
     The Society is selling (for an outrageous $69.69) pairs of 'Monica Lewinsky Presidential Kneepads.' "No White House Intern should be without them," says de Szigethy.
     He thinks the Lewinsky affair will produce many candidates for this year's award.  "I expect President Clinton to be a contender, but I would not be surprised to see Kenneth Starr nominated, as well, for his subpoena of Monica's mother," the zany de Szigethy says.

On September 11, 1998 the New York Post's Neal Travis announced the introduction of 'Monica Lewinsky Presidential Cigars.'  The timing of Neal's column could not have been more perfect, because on that very day the story broke about the significance of the 'cigar' in question, which was front-page news on the Post and many other newspapers nationwide.  Below is what Neal had to say:

Presidential Smoke Joke
     THOSE merry pranksters at the Chappaquiddick Society, who usually go after the Kennedy clan, are now making sport of Bill Clinton's scandals.  They've just come up with a fund-raising gimmick, a line of 'Monica Lewinsky Presidential Cigars.'  "What this country needs - a good 69-cent cigar!" says the wrapper.  Darned if I know what they're talking about.
