John Kerry Issues Statement On TMZ Photos

1216744755Earlier today, we linked to a photo gallery that featured Sen. John Kerry posing for pictures with several young women.

Kerry spokesman David Wade has issued a statement about the gossip site’s assertion that the Senator was partying with the women.

“The caption on this TMZ gossip website is completely erroneous and insulting and it should be immediately corrected.”

“As Sen. Kerry and two friends left dinner at the Straight Warf restaurant on Nantucket and walked down the dock, a large group on a boat recognized Senator Kerry and asked if they could have a photo taken. The group came off the boat and onto the dock, took a photo with Sen. Kerry and his friends, and then Sen. Kerry and his two friends immediately walked away. End of story.”

TMZ has left the gallery up, but has added the statement from Kerry’s office to its post and removed the original caption.
