20. Name ONE lawmaker who has uncovered more government corruption than
John Kerry has the last 20 years. You can't.

He was also the first senator to submit gay friendly legislation and advocated for gays to serve openly in the military - issues that were NEVER popular, but he chose to lead on them. Same with the very unpopular investigations into IranContra, BCCI and CIA drugrunning - he did them WITHOUT support from anyone in his party and he was ostracized for years by the DC powerstructure.

Funny, but back then, it was the GOP operatives planting stories that it was pure showmanship by Kerry to discredit him. Love how the old memes still hang around today and spouted by people who should know better.
