Caroline Given Pass on Scrutiny

When Caroline Kennedy was employed by New York’s Education Department from 2002 to 2004, as chief executive of the Office of Strategic Partnerships, she was not required to file financial and other personal disclosure forms, even though every other of the city’s 7,000 employees were obliged to. Even Mayor Mike Bloomberg, a billionaire who, like Caroline, took just $1 a year from the city, was required to file disclosure forms. The New York Times reports that Caroline’s finances “have been a source of curiosity since she entered the contest to be named New York’s next senator. She has property in New York and on Martha’s Vineyard, and estimates of their worth have varied greatly.” Caroline has promised that, should she be chosen for the Senate job, she is “going to comply with every kind of disclosure that’s available.”
